According to ProgrammableWeb, Siri uses more than 35 APIs to find what it needs.
A Siri presentation from Feb. 2010 (Apple officially bought it in April 2010) suggests that the future of search includes a "rise of partnerships among APIs."
"Given the rate at which Apple fanboys adopt next-gen technology, Siri should only get more and more popular and gain access to more and more app APIs," wrote an excited Digital Trends, "making your iPhone as hands-free as it gets."

And just to clarify. Gmail calendar and mail I don't think has access to Siri's APIs. Siri can interact and use what is defined in settings such as default calendar and default mail. It will be a while until third parties have access to it and I'm sure it will be pretty limited at first.

The only thing that seems accessible to 3rd party is the new dictation button on the keyboard. That's in all apps. But I don't think Siri will be able to tell you your Google Calendar events. If it could, it would also read Twitter messages, Google+ posts, Facebook news, etc.
I'm sure it will come eventually, maybe in iOS 5.1. Siri is in beta, don't forget.
