Android has built-in google voice search, which is a relatively small subset of the functionality offered by Siri. Google voice is basically just voice recognition combined with web searches (and in some cases, map searches).

Siri adds much more sophisticated AI and the ability to understand context within a "conversation", along with built-in support for geofencing (i.e. remind me to call home when I leave work).

Ask your Android phone to set your alarm for 7am tomorrow, and see what happens. It will probably just search google for "set my alarm for 7am tomorrow" and it will probably just return a list of web sites with people demonstrating Siri's capabilities.


(oh yeah and Siri talks)

siri works fine on Sprint 3G. It's a bit slower, but it works.

yeah, as much as i am not a fan of iPhone, Google Voice Search and other shitty apps in market are no where near Siri. I dont know how useful it is in reality, but it is pretty cool

Yeah as I said iphone did amplify the whole voice to text speech thing. Actually there are android apps that are almost similar to siri. There is Sam. I told sam to set alarm for 7pm tommorow and it did exactly that. Im not hating on the iphone for its technology but rather for its price. Its nowhere near worth it for what you can get with an android.

Nah, I wouldn't do that:

Android = 328
iPhone = 335

Heh... the problem with Android is that almost every phone is a flavor-of-the-week which are soon abandoned by their manufacturers (in terms of OS updates) in favor of the next shiny thing.

I got rid of my Galaxy S phone; no updates in months, and little hope of even getting Android 2.3. It's already old news.

What about the Galaxy S II? Bah, old news. Trounced in benchmarks by the iPhone 4S.

Hell, even the brand new Razr Droid is old news, and it's not even out yet. Why? It only runs Gingerbread. It'll probably never get updated to Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) that just came out. Why buy a brand new phone that's still running an old OS?

You pretty much have to root your phone if you want to stay current on software.

If you get an iPhone, sure you could jailbreak it too, but you'll also be getting at least 2 years' worth of OS updates and new features.

Yeah alright that's partially true..but like you said all you have to do is root your phone and you'll be on the current software that everyone is out. With an iphone everything is more expensive and jailbreaking has many con's. I guess you can say its personal preference but I dont like following the crowd and jumping on the Iphone because it looks "cool".
