no one talking about it?

I think it works well, nice having it on the keyboard - did not miss a word in a 100 word paragraph I just did...SIRI based?

This was a primary reason for me getting the new iPad. Glad to hear it is working so well!

Can't wait for mine to get here....

I wasn't expecting this to be my second-favorite new feature (after the screen, naturally), but it is.

It's flawless, even with most proper names.

I actually just used dictation to write (dictate) a review for an app. It worked flawlessly. :D

I'm going to try to use this to take "notes" in class, and by that I mean write down that my professor is saying. He speaks fairly loudly. Not sure how well it will work. I won't be disappointed if it doesn't, but it'll be cool if it does.

Haha, let us know if it does work. I highly doubt it will work flawlessly, if at all.

Is it activated by default? I don't see the key on my keyboard
You should see it to the left of the space bar. It's a microphone symbol.

Same setup as the Android Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 that I had with it being implemented on the keyboard. Can't wait to purchase one of these things (hoping the company will buy it) because it's a nice feature too bad it works horribly on the iPhone 4S for me.

Just get him to pin a wireless mic on his lapel, the receiver for which you plug into your iPad ;).

Then, if you can get him to push the record button for you before he begins his lecture, you can skip every lecture.

I have to say, the dictation works amazing on this thing. Been using it all day to send iMessages and emails.
