    I have shown off Siri to a couple of coworkers and the things it can do from the practical to the funny replies and other Easter eggs. Its funny to see the reactions It's usually Whaaaaat! :eek: No way! That is cool to that is bad ass! etc.:eek: I now have 2 of them that definitely want to get an iPhone 4S just because of that. I of course let them know about the other updated features of the camera etc. Alot of them are blown away by Siri alone though. So I was wondering if anyone else sold some friends, coworkers, family members etc on getting the iPhone 4S or even the iPhone in general just from Siri or perhaps another feature of the iPhone.

    No. People who want an iPhone will want an iPhone. Not for Siri. Not for new features.

    People want an iPhone because they know it's apple and it's simple to use. That's why people buy iPhones.

    Siri has nothing to do with why people buy iPhone 4s.

    Most of my friends have said how good Siri is, but none of them consider it a reason to change their phone.

    How are you gonna say something like this when the OP specifically stated that he knows people that want the iPhone 4S because of Siri? Did you just read the title and decide to reply without reading the post?

    Sure, it will be useful in some situations, but it's use will be a fraction of what all the hype portends.

    No one I know is geeky enough to consider buying a phone for it.

    Not that I know of.

    I actually think Siri is an even bigger gimmick than 3D to be honest.

    Wrong. I have a relative who never wanted an iPhone but head Howard stern demonstrate Siri and now he can't stop talking about getting a 4s. Siri is a killer feature that puts the 4s streets ahead of all other smartphones.

    Normal people want it for Siri not geeks.

    No. My friends had their belief confirmed that Siri does not work. Four to five of them tried out the dictation, and no were able to achieve satisfactory recognition rate. They are normal people, not geek. May be they were influenced by me.
