    With the 10.3.1 update scheduled for February, I was wondering if the Blackberry Assistant would be updated as well? I kinda like the Siri and Cortana personalities and was hoping if the Assistant would be upgraded a little to have a little more personality...
    I did ask her what her favorite color was...She said, "Black of course."

    So, you have no sense of humor? No one to talk to? Bored?

    BlackBerry Assistant is not gimmick or ponytailed hyper girl with speech impediment... it's a business tool. It like moneypenny from bond movies, georgeos redhead from mad man... not a party pony!

    I like to think that BlackBerry Assistant has a "Serious / professional " disposition. This is her personality. I like that she doesn't waste time trying to be funny.

    Maybe BlackBerry will add some more professional touches like using titles, please and thank you, may I, when there's extra processing time to spare.

    BlackBerry Assistant also asks me 10 questions before it will call someone from my address book.

    Siri is so accurate that I only have to ask once.

    I just want BlackBerry to make the new assistant faster...it takes a while for it to give me the responses or complete actions when compared to Siri or other assistance....work in progress I suppose

    My BlackBerry assistant has no voice at all. All I get is a typed response on the screen. I have gone into the settings and made sure that voice response is on. Any idea what may be causing the problem? I am on 10.3.0.908

    Agreed. BlackBerry Assistant need to be more productive, funnier. She should also be sassy, and witty..yet polite. With the voice like Scarlett Johansson...something like 'Samantha'! I would love that...

    If you talk to it, it should talk back. If you type to it, it should display back only. No sound

    BlackBerry Assistant is very young compare to IOS Siri but it not behind much. Within a year BlackBerry Assistant might up with IOS Siri. BlackBerry Assistant is slower than Siri because BlackBerry Assistant has to pull deeper roots of information than Siri. If you ask about yours today calendar, Siri will tell you the Calendar on the phone right away, but BlackBerry Assistant will dig deeper into the calendar on the phone and at work.

    Blackberry Assistant is further proof that blackberry is indeed a tool...not a toy.

    True, why can't she be humorous and productive at the same time?

    I want it to sound like a stuffy butler (get Jim Carter to voice it) and address me like I'm being served at Downton. I'm absolutely serious.
    Why does it have to be female?

    I am saddened she is coming up against such resistance. Maybe she should search herself for a good place to work on her verbal acumen.

    Trying to be helpful because I'm a giver, not a taker.

    I am using 10.3.1.2072 and I think they have tried a little more personality.
    Try asking
    What is my name?
    What is your favorite color.
    What is the meaning of life?
    How much wood would can a wood chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?
    What is the best phone?
    Can you dance?

    I would rather that blackberry invest resources in making BA more useful than trying to give it a quirky fake personality. There is a lot of room for improvement. With that being said, I've been very pleased with it. It's really impressive for a product that is so young compared to its competitors. I use it pretty frequently and it has worked quite well for me.
