    I have no first-hand experience with Siri, but I'm really happy with the capability and performance of Choice Dialer+ (paid app) on my Android phone. You can adjust speed of the synthesized voice, set audible or visual confirmation, set activation method, dictate text messages, voice dial contacts, and much more.

    Although we won't have anything as good until it is integrated into the OS like it is with iOS. Most of the iPhone folks I talk to about say they enjoy it, but once the novelty of it wears off, they hardly use it.

    That being said I will try some of the apps others have listed.

    So I gave Jeannie a try. I couldn't get it to work as well as the video that is shown in the market place. Not really the apps fault I suppose. I live in an area that only has 2G and it relies on the network for speech recognition. Which doesn't surprise me though. Other than that it seems to work fairly well.

    Siri is a stupid program, a pathetic and hilariuos image of a person talking and chatting with a phone comes to me
    Really it have no practical use at all.
