    I have had a chance to use dictation on the new iPad and I simply love it. It is incredibly responsive and accurate. I also have the iPhone 4S and I love Siri and I use it almost daily, and dictation is very good on the 4S as well. While I haven't had a chance to do a side by side comparison, the dictation on the iPad seems to be much faster and more accurate than on the iPhone 4S. Both are used on the same Wifi network.

    Has anyone else noticed better dictation on the new iPad?

    I don't have an iPhone 4S, but on the new iPad it is definitely very accurate.

    I haven't used it on the 3. I think it works phenomenal on the 4S

    I also noticed this immediately the first time I used dictation on the iPad. Works better than my 4s.

    My biggest problem using dictation is that I can't think as fast as I can talk!

    I find it to be much improved on the iPad. I have the Daedalus app for when I need to do a little word processing, having the voice recognition integrated into it now is absolutely excellent.

    Ipad 3's dictation vs Siri on the 4s...

    Ipad 3 wins! Even with my strong scottish accent.. siri just can't handle that :(

    I must be a worse teuchter than you. lol. It makes loads of mistakes so I find I spend more time going back correcting it so would be as well typing in the first place.

    Dictation is pretty flawless. Yeah it needs a somewhat quiet background obviously but it picks up every word every time.

    Typed this using dictaton.
