I wonder also if Siri will be enabled on other devices. It would be nice to have it on my iPod touch 4G. I also wonder if there is some kind of hardware chip on the new iPhone 4S that enables Siri. I thought it was just software. Does anyone have any insight on this??
Some of you are saying other devices have too little RAM.
iPhone 4 and 4S reportedly have the same amount.
Others are saying it requires the new A5.
Why isn't it on the iPad 2?
And others are saying it will be nearly impossible/flat out impossible that SIRI could be on other devices
Some hackers put SIRI partially on an iPod touch 4th Gen.
All arguments against SIRI being on older devices are invalid (Other then the one about the selling point, that would make some sense)

So I think the real answer here is we have no idea?? Haha but personally I think they'll bring it specifically to the iPad 2 once it's out of the beta testing phase because it runs the same hardware. There no reason it couldn't be on the iPad 2. Just thinking they'll run it beta for iPhone 4s specifically until prob after christmas

Also: If Apple never releases SIRI for older devices and you guys don't want to (Or Can't) upgrade and don't want to jailbreak there is an amazing app in the app store called Vlingo which is about the same, in certain areas it's better, in other areas not so much.

As for the OP's questions, I think it has more to do with it being a distinguishing factor for Apple's newer devices. That, and adding, say, the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 user base, would put an enormous strain on Apple's Siri servers. Seeing as how this is beta software, that would make sense to me.

Highly doubt it (referring to the original question). If we're about 6-9 months away from an iPhone 5 and they're going to keep selling the iPhone 4s for $199 while the 4 is HALF of that, they need some type of feature to differentiate the two. Simply saying "better processor and radios" isn't going to resonate with many causal buyers.
