If you watch the video of Introducing iPhone 4S, you will see how awesome SIRI is, you can ask to read message, reply to a text, requesting to find a location or establishment and many more.

It will also get content from another faster content engine DuckDuckgo that uses information from crowd based websites like Wikipedia and Yahoo Answers to answer questions. You can ask anything like conversions, art, literature, history, and biology and mostly, it will answer with a paragraph from Wikipedia.
