iPad 2 was released Pre-iPhone 4S.

iPad mini was released Post-iPhone 4S.

Simple as that.

I have it on the iPad (gen 3).
I use it once or twice a week when I'm too lazy to type something. Saves 0.23 milliseconds...assuming it understands you correctly.
Don't fret.
It's a gimmick that you'd soon tire of (as I, and many others, have)

I think siri is more serviceable on the iPad mini or iPhone/iPod

Where the hell is the split screen? I would love to use one of these as a media controller. Split the screen with the controls for the HT receiver on one side and itunes\iheart\pandora\youtube\remote on the other. Or web surfing on one side and secruity camera on the other.

I thought I saw an Android device with that ability.

I'm holding off on all iDevice purchases until that is an option. The latest gen stuff is good enough for now. I'm gonna hold onto the iPhone 4s' in the house until the next version is out. 5s, 6, ?

You want Samsung to sue Apple? Galaxy note 10.1 has that option and it's pretty good. Their note phone has that too and it works flawlessly. They'll probably bring it to all their smartphones and tablets.

I found the key to success but somebody changed the lock.

I don't have the link, but I saw in Macenthusiast that Apple recently patented a design for a flip phone version of the iPhone with two screens. A duo screen iPad can't be far behind...

IMO Siri is most useful on the iPhone. I use it constantly on my phone for the hands free operation, used it maybe twice on my iPad.

The number of times I have to repeat myself to Siri or correct what it hears makes it virtually useless to me.

Windows 8 and Windows RT have that split screen feature too. They call it “Snap”. I see nothing wrong with Apple implementing this feature too.

As for Siri, I think it could be more useful and suspect that it will over time. I wish it was totally hands free though,...
