There is nothing there that Android doesn't already do better.

I'm ready to say that Apple maps will suck in the US and REALLY suck outside the US.

Wow this is revolutionary (what year is it - 2010?)!
Siri button in a car - Siri is deaf? can't hear us calling her name! Facebook integration - amazing, nobody has it - it's a first(read only for iOS)!
Twitter,fb shortcuts.
And they call it new OS - seriously? Collective upgrade/addition of apps - that's what makes a new OS...thank you Apple for intoducing the new definition of new OS - mankind is obliged!

Have you seen Android 4.0? It had all these features. Even MiUi 2.2/2.3 had these features years ago... iOS is the most advanced OS of the 1980's

Even thoug new Siri kicks Samsung's S Voice ass, I think the main features of the iOS 6 are Facebook integration(deep integration) and Apple Maps :)
