With Siri, Apple has played a master stroke and limiting it to only iPhone 4S was a great marketing strategy which gave all iPhone users to upgrade to the 4S version and making it the most successful iPhone release ever.
While there have been many attempts to port Siri to other iDevices and even devices based on other platform than iOS, but as Siri needs to send data to Apple Servers no public release has been made available due to legality issues. With Siri not being available to other iOS devices, you can still however get the Siri Dictation on your Jailbroken iDevice with Siri0us.
As the developers have mentioned :
Siri dictation for your iOS 5 devices. No iPhone 4S keys/files required.
The folks at iDownloadBlog have also came up with a video demonstrating the Siri0us in action and it works as promised. The device gives to ability to dictate to your Jailbroken iDevice…. the Siri style.
How To Install Siri0us On your Jailbroken iDevice :
The app Siri0us is available for free in Cydia if you do not mind some adds here and there. You just have to add http://apt.if0rce.com repository to Cydia and search for the app by name.
Some users have mentioned a bug in the app as it makes your iDevice keep on respiring. However there is also a fix at hand.
The developer has noted a bug that some may run into when trying to install. If your iDevice keeps respringing, do not restore! Use a SSH tool to remove the/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AssistantServices.framework file.
