    Default Will SIRI come to older devices?

    What do you guys think? I mean it's coming it the iPod Touch 4th gen (2011) and the only difference between that and the 2010 model is "It comes in white Now"

    So, Thoughts?

    Siri needs the specs of the 4S iPhone to run properly. It may be possible to do on a 4, but the end user experience will be less than satisfactory.

    Cross your fingers

    Also, would just like to point out to the poster above me ^^^ that nobody knows that for sure yet... it may run perfectly. It's anyone's call

    Yeah it doesn't seem like it's need a large amount of specs.

    I am an Android user for my phone area, but a committed iPod touch user (Have had every single generation so far) and on my Android (Samsung Captivate) they already have something that's nearly exactly like SIRI on there and my phone has equal or lower specs then the iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4 so it seems like it's highly possible that it would come to the slightly earlier devices

    My own personal opinion is that it won't if you remain pure. I think they would have to have some exclusive features to make you want to get the new model.

    Of course SIRI could work on the iPhone 4 (total opinion!)

    But they need selling points for the 4s (as it doesn't have too many new ones)

    Only time will tell. Hopefully the jailbreakers can port it over to iPhone 4 if it's only restricted to i4S

    From what I have read the 4S and the iPhone 4 have the same amount of RAM.... Either way I'd think the 4 could handle it, everything else I think we will see iOS 5 be trimmed down like iOS 4 was for legacy devices.

    I'm gonna be pretty upset if it doesn't come for me (iPod Touch 4th gen), but I'm expecting it, cause its on the iPhone page...not the iOS 5 page...

    I think SIRI can be designed to work with the 4 and not just 4S but the Camera,Faster Processor and SIRI are the only selling points to go from 4 to 4S. Apple makes it seem like it can't be used on anything else. SIRI was a app that was running on Iphone4 and Apple bought it modified it. I guarantee it will be a jailbroken app in the near future on jailbroken idevices.

    It wouldn't make any sense to release it any way for the iPhone 4.... well not from a business perspective. SIRI is a huge marketing device.

    Better camera and 2 antennas! That's right! 2!

    but in all seriousness, probably nothing.

    Apparently it needs the new A5 chip to work properly

    I agree. That seems like a terrible move.

    Being able to control my iPad as it sits on my desk via my voice would be phenomenal!

    I highly doubt, especially if the 4S has the purported 512 MB of RAM (like the 4), that Siri on the 4 would be "less than satisfactory." I don't see it as being a highly intensive process.

    Reading jailbreak community blogs, the consensus is SIRI is deeply embedded into the firmware with hard-coded hooks requiring the A5 chipset, and getting it to work on an iPhone4 is not coming any time soon, if ever.

    if i recall correctly, SIRI used to be a free app, which was compatible with any ios device, but following Apples purchase of the company, the app was removed from the App Store. Technically it should be available, but it's up to the marketing folk at Apple.
