    it funny i sold my iPhone for the droid bionic and i love this phone. my son got the iPhone 4s and i was playing with siri and omg its great you can ask it anything. i know droid has the voice stuff but its not like siri. maybe i am wrong and these is an app like siri for the droid but i must say apple did a great job with it. but siri won't get me to switch back to apple now. i just wanted to let you all know that siri is a great feature but not enough for those who want to switch stay with the droid guys!

    We've had voice command apps on android for a while now but I never really used them... like Vlingo for instance.

    fantom557: Tell Siri "I love you" and see what she says back. I saw a funny video the other day on youtube...

    Siri aside, most other "advanced features" in the iPhone 4S are copied from Android. My wife just did the OS update on her iPhone 4 to iOS 5 and is so excited about having a drop down with notifications... Apple use to be a leader and now is undoubtedly a Follower.

    my son just got a text and all he had to do is put the phone to his ear and say the answer and it did it no buttons to press very cool feature.

    Don't want to knock it as I never tried it, but isn't the whole point so you don't have to pick up the phone in the first place?

    Android has a similar app, Jarvis is a popular one, but I never used it. Most of the time I'm in the car with other people and my text messages really aren't any of their business.

    Siri seems like a good idea, but these voice command apps/software don't work nearly as well as shown in the promotion videos. Now that it's finally on iOS, maybe other developers will step their game up and make better voice command apps.

    You should ask Siri how she feels about Android :D

    I actually hired someone who works for me 24 hours a day, anytime I have a question I just ask him and he finds the answer for me. His name is John but I like to call him Chi-Chi, I think it fits him better. It does get a little awkward when I have to take him around with me to work and on dates though. But overall I think it was a sound investment.

    I mean unless you can incorporate john into the rebel I'd say you're just boasting

    My friend also got the new iPhone 4s..

    The difference Siri has versus Vlingo, Jarvis, Speaktoit, and Voice Actions(app) is that it seems to understand words better and process them better, and with a more wide range of replies. It is pretty damn cool not needing to touch the phone. But nonetheless, still a gimmick I can't see people sticking to after the hype dies down.
