Apparently, after installing the newest iOS 5.1 beta (v.3) users with the iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone 3Gs, have all found a possibly telling setting in the Keyboard menu. These users are seeing a disclaimer underneath the options for Intenational Keyboards which describes the privacy policy and data policies for dictation, and of course Siri is the only form of dictation that would be built-in to any iOS devices.

Of course, this could just be a bug that those users are seeing this disclaimer. It would seem odd that iPhone 4 and iPad 2 users wouldn't be in the mix, but it could be the real deal. Only time will tell.
