below is from a review of the new I-phone4: 

        You've heard the rumors
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.
