it works with the apple servers that would be kind of unfair. And if you use it on Android and say what's the best phone ever. And you got unlucky it says "there's the iphone and nothing I guess". That would be funny.

Nah they won't put in into Android, android need to make their own personal assistant. Wich I thought won't be as awesome as siri is.

If Siri gets traction, expect an Android analog. Google is not going to sit around letting Apple get a corner on voice commands commanding things. I doubt that Apple can patent voice commands commanding things, as the core of Siri was a DARPA project, which means the citizens of the U.S. own the IP.

Voice actions - now called jeanie, or jeannie in the market is a close tie to sira. There have been som good update to it. Not as fast, but it works well. You can ask most of the questions that you ask siri. Free for android, dont remember the cost for apple.
