Several reports are indicating it only has 512mb
That'd be the same as the iPhone 4
Can we please put this to rest?
They need every hook they can get to have people buy the 4s, and siri is one of those hooks.
They'll keep it exclusive to the 4s SO THEY CAN SELL IT!
It's a marketing move, not a hardware limitation.
Please don't forget it used to be available right on the app store. (as some smart people before me have mentioned)

I don't really care that it is built into the iPhone 4s... I just think the original app should be left alone. I mean there were several things you couldn't do on the Siri app that I'm sure you could do on the iPhone 4s built in feature, in order to maintain some level of exclusivity.

Did you ever RUN the old Siri app on the current hardware? It was not more than a technology demonstration, be was clearly a stripped down version.
The developer is on record stating that the 4S is the first hardware capable of running the app.
Why do you guys insist in seeing conspiracy and evil in the world? Your lives must be very sad indeed

Siri really sold me on the new iPhone. Without it, I'm not sure I'd have been so quick jumping to want to ditch my iPhone 4 for the 4S. I do wish we had more independent reviews of the device, though, to make more decisions from - though I'm sure it's pretty sweet.

I cannot vouch for the technical specs required for the personal assistant, but I am sure that most would really appreciate that little microphone button on their keyboard and would use it regularly, I know that I would.

I believe SIRI will be available on the iPhone 4. To me its just a matter of how hard will it be for the jail breakers to port and will they put fourth the effort.

I could almost be certain that, like everyone has been saying, a jailbreak will likely be the only way Siri will run on your iPhone 4 - and it will likely run poorly compared to the 4S. This isn't bashing, it's just likely the truth.
Yes, Apple is marketing Siri on the 4S to sell it, but you have to understand they were built for one another. You can get Siri running on the iPhone 4 eventually, but it just won't run as smoothly or as Apple intended on older devices. There's no reason to get bitter - any of you folks with an iPhone 4 who are bitter about not ordering a 4S, get on Craigslist and sell your 4 for about $300 - $400, then go buy yourself a 4S. There's no reason to badmouth something that's not even released yet like anyone really knows. More light will be shed on the subject after the device release, and everyone will sound more credible.
So be happy, iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S - you still have a killer device.

Siri on Iphone4S iOS5 - Yes
Siri on Iphone4 iOS5 - No
Siri did exist in the app store on the iphone4 prior to Apple buying it and modifying it and throwing it at the Iphone4S for a strong selling point.
So some kind of Siri technology is definately possible on the Iphone4. Anyone thats educated in the jailbreak world knows, that anything that the mind can come up with a developer can do it in jailbreak form of course. The devs have already looked at Siri and will have to make there own version of it to work on the Iphone4. Apple made it hard to just copy and throw at the Iphone4. The devs will have to spend some good time and research for it to work on the Iphone4. One day we will see some kind of Siri technology available in a jailbroken app. 4 years ago people would say it would be impossible to sync a phone over wifi and now look. Tether a phone as a modem. Advanced Voice Control on the iPhone4 from Apple will never happen. Its up to whoever that wants to develop it to make it now.

If the feature requires logging into an apple server to use, like the old app did, i gather it would be easy for apple to limit users of the server to 4S users, meaning that JB may not help any. But if it will be possible, it makes sense that it would require a jailbroken phone.
