i agree that aircel has launched 3g in all 13 circles but in limited cities. They have covered only one or two cities in each circle where airtel/voda/reliance has covered most of the cities & important towns..

Google search with voice – like Siri is available on iOS

I tried it on my iPod touch – it works with words spoken with Indian accent (most of the times) and my son tried on his old generation iPad it works on that also

If people are keen on iOS Eco system but don’t want to spend more for the sake of Siri, they can use Google search on cheaper non Siri iPhones and iPads
