Is Siri Assistant any better than Google Voice Control?

I'm wondering if Apple's Siri Assistant is better than Google Voice Actions app in sence of understanding human voice.

What about the enviroment noise factor. Is it reduced in the app?

I'm very interested to find this answer out, too. I've read that it is better, but I don't think that we will really find that out until the iPhone 4s is released to the public.

I hope that they did some improvements on the old Siri app...

Hmm, is Siri available on iOS 5 or just on the iPhone 4S? If it's the former, iOS 5 is supposed to come out on October 12 - two days before the new iPhone's release.

Siri is an app that was pulled from the App Store and will not be available again , afaik. The Apple Assistant , based on the Siri app, will only be available on the 4s.

The reviews seem to be extremely positive, esp since it seems Siri supposedly shows of a sense of humor sometimes.

I am wondering how it will work with accented english(non-native speakers).

I havent tried Google Voice. Does that work with accented english?
