I know they are made to do many things, but it's prime function is voice calls. Just thought it was ironic and somewhat comical. Don't read too much into it, it is just an observation. More on topic: I am highly skeptical that it will function that smoothly and be so intuitive. Especially the weather part where they ask about a city and then say "what about such and such place?" without having to query it again with the specific command of "weather for such and such". This kind of software has come a long way, but I can almost guarantee it will not work that fast and smooth.
It does indeed work that fast and smooth. It also stays on topic, so if you've asked for weather for somewhere, and then said "and what about New York", it would give you the weather for New York.
If you say "Call my wife", it will say "I don't know who your wife is, who is your wife?", then you specify a name on your contact list (which you can do by voice or by hand), and then from then on it will remember your wife. You can do this for lots of different family relationships. Pretty neat, but I still don't think I'd use it all that much. It is faster to use Siri to ask for a map of something for example, than going to Safari, and doing a google search for it. Also, if you don't want to look like you're in public talking with a computer you can just put the phone up to your head and talk and Siri will respond in the earpiece rather than on the speaker.
