below is from a review of the new I-phone4: You've heard the rumors <http://www.engadget.com/2011/07/25/leak-future-ios-update-to-introduce- siri-based-voice-control/> , and Apple has now confirmed that it will be bringing Siri voice control to its new iPhone 4S -- and, yes, it will still be called Siri <http://www.engadget.com/tag/siri> . That will let you use natural language to perform tasks like asking for a weather forecast or getting directions, setting an alarm or making a calendar appointment, and searching Wikipedia or Wolfram Alpha for information (among many other possibilities). Described as a "humble personal assistant," Siri will work in English (including the UK and Australia), French and German for now, and it'll work with all built-in apps and over both 3G and WiFi. It'll also be a beta to start with, and Apple promises that it "gets better" as it learns your voice. Unfortunately for current iPhone owners, however, it looks like Siri will only be available on the iPhone 4S (at least initially). Somewhat curiously, there's also no mention of Siri on Apple's Canadian website, although the Siri app itself wasn't available in Canada either.
