Here's a quick video, unlisted in YouTube. :3
Sorry if crappy 480p.
How dare you make it in 480p! I jest
Thanks for the video. Good to know. I really want Apple to go even further with software optimisations, push it to the max.
To all those who want to know why Siri was pulled from the App Store here's some reasons
The version on the 4S has a year and a half worth of improvements and is integrated into the 4S giving it many more capabilities. The version on the App Store would be the most downloaded app after only a short while and it would be used to get a general idea of what Siri on the 4S is like, and that'll leave consumers unimpressed and disappointed. The fact of the matter, the two are significantly different and Apple doesn't want any connection between the two. (This is a big factor considering how Apple likes to keep everything incredibly super simple for the consumer.)
It costs them money. That app was originally submitted to the App Store by the company that developed Siri which was a few months later acquired by Apple. They would have to pay for the servers it uses, etc., and they're making nothing off keeping it up.
They couldn't change the name of it because not only would that "new name for Siri" spread on the internet which would consequently result in everyone downloading it for a few days and having the same problems as #1, it would look as if Apple has simply put Siri on the 4S and renamed it on the App Store, calling the former a new feature.
You think they did it to encourage consumers buy the 4S? Yes but not for the reason you think. The version on the App Store was nothing but a gimmick, a little toy to play with, it was much slower and I guess less accurate considering the fact the version on the 4S has had a year and a half of improvement. So what are iPhone 3G/3GS/4 users losing? Nothing. The part that will encourage consumers to buy the iPhone 4S or prevent them from not buying it I should say, is what I said above, not being able to download and test Siri on the App Store which will leave them unimpressed.
