    The iPad has dictation, which is as close as it gets. Siri is not available on the iPad for several reasons. The main reason is that it will only work on the 4G models and the carriers do not like it because of the amount of data it uses. It is also not suitable for the iPad format. I do expect that some Siri features will be enabled in future iOS updates.

    Thanks for this explanation. I was also wondering why no Siri in the new iPad and what you say is very logical.

    Hell, you have to be careful with the way you speak when utilizing dictation anyway. It doesn't get my normal Texas regional accent. I have to think about purposely speaking like a Yankee or someone from Cali to get it to come out right. They don't tell you that you will have to do voice impersonations in order to use dictation. Can you imagine how strange it would look and sound to someone if they had no idea why I was doing that and I was using dictation in public? HA!
