I am sorry I don’t know how to do that !

Ok, so finally I have the iPhone 4S as O2 finally decided to offer via the website !.

As some of you already know I have been in hospital for a bit and my contract renewal was slap bang during my stay (I didn’t fancy my chances of getting it delivered there). So I placed my order on 19th Nov and received my text message advising the iPhone 4S was out if stock and it could take 3-4 weeks to supply. I kinda expected a delay due to the demand for the 4S.

So to my surprise I got a text on the 20th to advise delivery on the 21st :O wow !

So now I have said device what’s my thoughts, well it’s good and it is a much needed upgrade of my flagging 3GS and Siri is a nice feature but one of those after a few mins gets a bit old hat. Sure it’s a neat bit of technology and I am sure once Siri is out of beta and learns more new tricks it will be a much more useful feature. However for now I am a bit disappointed, sure I can dictate a text but not a tweet even tho IOS 5 has Twitter integration built in and API’s. Sure I can ask Siri to play my music, search a website, add an appointment to my calendar even set a geo-fence reminder – but you have to make sure Siri gets your request clearly otherwise you will get “I am sorry I dont know about….”

Ok I am probably being a bit tough on Siri, and whats with the male UK voice ? Why not female (without having to switch to US mode). I think once I can get Siri to locate where the nearest Pub/Indian/Chinese is in my country my use of Siri will be much more heavily utilized 😉
