An "expert" was on the show discussing the new iPad. Anyways, he was asked by the host if this new iPad has Siri and he replied "Yes". That is going to disappoint and confuse a lot of people.

I can see how someone could confuse Siri/dictation, or quad core GPU/CPU for that matter. Doesn't sound like much of an expert, but I have a feeling that sort of confusion will be common with this iPad.

I saw it too.
Turned to my wife and said, "their 'expert' just misinformed a lot of people".

Siri is just useless here in the UK...Okay for the basics, but try asking for fried chicken delivery, pizza etc. We still get the "I can only find businesses in the USA and if you are using American English" Not a major deal for me, was always going to buy anyway, but I was a little surprised that Apple didn't bother giving siri full functionality.

I'm actually glad it's not on the newbie...would just eat up space..:)

Well, more than likely the new iPad will get Siri in a few months when it comes out of beta.

I am imagining that Apple is working on some new iPad stuff for iOS 6. The fullscreen Siri interface on iPhone would obviously be a poor experience on iPad.

No it won't. Anyone watching good morning today is already working from behind the 8 ball.

It was the today show. They corrected shortly after he made the comment. Cut the guy some slack. I can only image the crap that may come out of some people's mouths when they are on live tv.
