    Call it "Battery Pull" because that's synonymous with BlackBerry.

    Well, this may sound silly but, there is already an app on the Blackberry called Voice Dialer. yes, really. It's been there since OS4.

    Sooooo, they could call it Voice Assistant.

    That made me laugh out loud. Then I remembered having to wait eight minutes to use my old Storm 2 after a battery pull. =-O

    I still like Kevin. They could even have an on-screen avatar rocking a PB on a gold chain. ;-)

    That's a neat idea.. an option in the settings to train it to learn and respond to a name of your choosing..

    God I hope they never come out with a Siri type assistant. It's bad enough I had to listen to my co worker fiddle with his 4S for over an hour trying to get it to set up an single appt for him. Or worse yet the lady in front of me at Starbucks. I predict Siri related violence to start hitting the news.

    Excellent idea.
    What about the wife's name?
    So good to be able to command her to do things for me. Chauvinistic? Duck and hide !

    I read an article somewhere that the Apple's final terminology for Siri is "Assistant". Siri is in beta and the name of the original brand even though Apple acquired them.

    How about "Butler".

    and i really hope rim is working on some sort of intelligent voice app. vlingo is not one bit intelligent it just works on predetermined keywords. then again it probably won't happen. rim sucks at anything related to end consumer experience they should just become an it security company or something. leave consumer experience to the pros

    I predict that in 5 years SIRI will be completely forgotten. It is an obnoxious feature that is only fun for about 15 minutes and annoys everyone around it.

    Completely agree, lasted 5 mins on mine...

    I just dont understand why you need to dictate a text to someone, its a bloody phone, if you want to use voice, phone them!!!

    I guess it could be handy in the car, "call home" or whatever, but voice dialling has been around for years and works fine, dont see why it needed changing..

    On the plus side it'll make gathering office gossip easier as people dictate their dodgy texts (still waiting for the first news story where siri drops someone in it )

    As for a name?

    Isiduy - Im sorry i didnt understand you... bonus points if you can work out the pronunciation

    MIR is also the Russian space station that returned (plunged) to Earth years ago.

    I have not read the entire thread so hopefully this one is not taken.

    But following on how well Rim's done with our beloved Playbook, how 'bout:

    NoSiri as in No Siree - as in not much chance!
