    So it is Voice Dictation not Siri !

    So finally it is Voice Dictation and not Siri. Though the name is obvious and suggests the functionality but I am curious to find out what is it that this Voice Dictation will do ? which is different from SiRi ?

    it will simply convert your speach to text and that's it. With siri you can ask it questions and it will perform searches for you and so on, the iPad3 will not do this.

    Which is good, as siri would not work on wifi only devices if you're not connected to the internet....So ill take what I can get and use siri on my 4S.

    The benefit of the new voice dictation feature is it will work with any app that uses the standard iPad touch keyboard, which is almost all of them. No more dictating, then having to copy&paste the results.

    I was prepared to forgo Siri when there is no WiFi, but really wanted SiRi not just dictation - which I won't use all that much. I do a lot of photography but do not plan to use my iPad instead of my digital camera. Very disappointed with today's announcement. Will probably forgo this purchase and continue using my iPad 1 for another year. The only thing that would change my mind is if Apple made Siri available as an upgrade or something. Anyone know if hardware/firmware needs to be different for SiRi?

    It does not look like the dictation feature is available on my wi-fi only iPad 2; or I'm missing some setting to turn it on.

    The what features are available on what devices support page has not been updated yet, so nothing for sure.

    So what it means is ? It will write Mails and Take Notes on my Speech and thats it ! Right ?

    And it will not do Google Search or anything like 4s ?

    It looks like the voice support that is currently available for the iphone 4. Basically wherever you can input text you can tap the microphone and it will translate your voice to text. You could google search, by opening up google and hitting the mic.

    So then it becomes Siri isn't it ? Then what is the difference between Siri and Voice Dictation. I know siri is like a personal assistant but apart from the glorified term, I dont see what this voice dictation cannot do which siri can ?

    Any examples ?
