Siri ported to the iPhone 4

Siri has been ported to the iPhone through a couple of hackers. It was reported yesterday that Siri was able to be ported to the iPhone due to the fact that the software was not dependent on the A5 processor or the iPhone 4S.

From Engadget:

Apple’s iPhone 4 may not have the fancy dual core CPU of its successor, but thanks to the efforts of developer Steven Troughton-Smith and the folks at 9to5 Mac, it may soon have Siri. The port of thesultry voice assistant was accomplished by using the 4S Siri and Springboard files, and some serious elbow grease, no doubt. As you can see in the video below, it’s far from perfect, but it can recognize spoken commands without issue. Currently, the hack is missing an iPhone 4 GPU driver that keeps things running buttery smooth on the elder phone, and Cupertino won’t authenticate Siri’s commands coming from it either. So, it isn’t quite ready for primetime, but it should only be a matter of time before all you iPhone 4 owners can tell Siri what to do, too.

Are you excited to get Siri on the iPhone 4? Leave your thoughts below.
