TechnoFreak, 12 Oct 2011Mate you really need to read history more carefully... iPad copied what??? HP tablet??? Which ... moreThe iPhone design looked alike the LG Prada, which the LG Prada design and release way before the 1st iPhone released. Also the 1st iPad looked alike the HP tc1000. I believe that Apple took an already existing design and simply tweaked it, then called their own innovation.

well, nice feature, but pretty useless because:
1. I doubt SIRI will be developed in other languages than english, german and france, maybe italian and spanish..but the rest of the languages of the world will probably left out...
2. Beyond language development, another problem will be that of information that will be available...if the area is not covered well SIRI will be pretty useless. For example,I doubt that SIRI will be of any help if i ask for an italian restaurant (as in the demo) and the answer will be that the closest restaurant is at 250 km from my location, because there is not detalied info for my area.
3. Most of the people will be unconfortable speaking alone in public (except those who want to show off, of course :P).
In conclusion: It's a nice feauture for USA and another 9-10 countries..but pretty useless for the rest of the world.

A million preorders in 24h! You can really see here that iphone fans really missed the 8mp camera and the dual-core power. This new Iphone Force really can't compensate with Siri for what we expected.
So siri comes in a female voice or a male voice? I hope it can have the talking tom voice
I tried each question using vlingo and got the same results, except for the weather bit.
Kudos to Siri for being linked to weather.

iPhone copied a lot from others (that's not necessarily a bad thing) and apple had very few original contribution. The main merit of apple is that they put together that iOS with other software and hardware, and the result is a pretty nice and good phone.
pretty impressive, but I find that vlingo's version for android is much better ...

It's so dumb, half the time I try to make calls it goes on finding tracks...
m imprsd by SIRI nd i4s but wil it rid th abrv's usd by so many uths 2dy? i strugle 2 rid msg's sumtym's.
I've never cared much for the iPhone still sort of don't, I don't like the OS really. However, Siri is a pretty sweet setup I'll give it that. I know the T-Mobile MyTouch devices have had a niffy little thing similar to that using the "Genius Button". I've never tried that out personally, but I know my stock android voice actions system sucks, heck my old Blackberry did a better job at it, at times. None the less this is pretty cool. Not enough to make me go to another carrier, or leave my Android phone behind, but I do like this. I'd love to see something like this within the android platform, maybe Nuance can come up with something on Siri's level.

If I find one, I will test it; but, based on the performance of this old technology, I have no reason to doubt it will work.
