    does anyone know if Siri is going to understand us in the uk and will it show us restaurants and other things,as at the moment I have real problems getting him to understand me, (yes I can speak English I'm Manchester uk) if Apple can get it working well in Japan,china then surely it should be better in uk..

    I am in the UK on iOS6 beta 4 and Siri finds me things and I can ask him to navigate me places and maps pops up. So yes Siri does work in the UK on the betas so it should work when publicly released.

    I know. It sounds good but I would prefer a woman's voice. Being a male and all. Not as good as my sat navs voice mind you ;)

    I use voice dictation much more than Siri, and find it always returns far better results.

    I'm from Manchester, UK and Siri understands me just fine. If I'm drunk and trying to show it off (on the iPad 3) it doesn't work so good because my accent becomes quite difficult to understand, to another Manc there wouldn't be a problem.

    Siri is still in it's public beta form, I don't think something like Siri can ever be complete as it's always developing.

    Although Sir understood me, she/he/it didn't find me anything relevant. I know it's still mainly for the folks across the pond, but I'm sure we'll get something sooner rather than later.

    It would be awesome if there were different voice's! and I'm sure that Apple will be making more improvements with Siri.

    Cute baby screen saver!

    Thanks :)

    Yeah, I'd love the option to have a female voice rather than the male one.

    I find that I prefer female voices. It seems more soothing. Like, even if Siri was popping up to warn me about the imminent doom of the entire planet, it wouldn't seem so bad coming from a female Siri.

    "I'm sorry, Dennis, but it seems the world is coming to an end and I can't connect to the network. Could you try asking your question later, in the after-life?"

    I prefer the female voice too, it just sounds right if you get what I mean. The male voice sounds quite, thick ha ha. He also sounds un-trustworthy.
