Apple Announces Siri, An Intelligent Voice-Controlled Assistant
Apple today announced a new voice-controlled application for the iPhone 4S called Siri: the intelligent assistant. According to Apple, Siri understands contextual directions, such as asking the device to set up an alert, or to check the weather, or to find out the time in Paris. The software uses voice recognition and a form of artificial intelligence to translate and process questions that it is asked. It then returns results or takes actions, depending on the request. The software can read back notifications or calendar appointments aloud without requiring the user to press any buttons. The software works with built-in iOS apps, and supports English, French, and German to start. Apple is calling Siri a beta product for now.

Siri definitely takes it 10 steps higher. I saw the hands-on demos and this is phenomenal.

Im not going to lie, the Iphone may have its boring body style making it look identical to the others but the "Siri" program looks amazing! Its like you are having a conversation with your Iphone. That alone has sold me.
