Apple iOS 5 assistant - Siri Intelligent voice recognition

Apple iOS 5 and possibly iPhone 5 will employ a new voice interface called the iOS assistant. Its a voice controlled system that enables the user to do a multitude of activities like clicking sending test messages, emails, search, maps etc.

All these by simple voice commands.

Macrumour has created a mock up of the system in action. It still remains to be seen how the actual product will be. Being a android user, I cant but help notice the striking resemblance to Google voice search.
