Siri Now Works With iPod Touch

Back in February I first wrote about Siri, the popular voice-controlled mobile assistant, and since it’s launch it has been well received by many. Because Siri has only been available for the iPhone, I have not been able to use it because I only own an original iPod Touch. A new version of Siri is now available that works with the iPod Touch running iPhone OS 3.0 or greater. The application also has more data and a larger vocabulary. Unfortunately, I still cannot use Siri because my original iPod Touch does not have a microphone. I have not upgraded my iPod Touch, which frankly is getting pretty scratched up, because I have not had a strong need to do so, but Siri is the first application I have encountered that I am interested in and cannot run, so a trip to the Apple store may be in my future.
