Apple disappointed some Siri fans today, by not bringing the personal assistant to its new tablet. Though Apple didn’t introduce full feature Siri for iPad today, it announced that iPad 3 will bring one of the most useful features of Siri to iPad – which is voice dictation. Now users will be able to tap on the new mic button on their on-screen keyboards and simply speak the text they want to enter on their iPad. This is a very nice way to write emails, text messages etc without the need of typing on the keyboard. iPad’s voice dictation software supports many languages including US English, British, Australian, French, German and Japanese. We are unsure whether this is an iPad 3 only feature or Apple plans to bring it to older iPads, and iPod touches in the future.
