    Unfortunately, this isn't my iPhone, but here's a snapshot of non-English Siri interaction, more specifically, in Korean:

    Translation:

    User: Call Kim Jong-il.
    Siri: Calling 111, the hotline for the National Intelligence Service...
    (NIS: the equivalent of the CIA for South Korea)

    LOL. Good point.

    Though now i am curious as to how Siri will act if there actually is a Kim Jong-il on the phonebook.

    This isn't anything new. I don't get why you posted.

    The iPhone supported French and German I think from day one. And has supported Japanese for a few months.

    Maybe because it was amusing even in a different language?

    And maybe because there are plenty of examples in English and I just wanted to share a different language?
