Voice dictation coming with the new iPad, but it's not siri

Along with the new iPad  announcement, Phil Schiller noted some new additions to the device,  one of which is voice dictation -  but don't go calling it Siri.

Voice dictation for the next generation iPad has been rumored since the announcement of the iPhone 4S with it having  Siri baked in.  For the new iPad, Apple has seemingly avoided including Siri, opting to simply include the dictation services and not the full personal assistant option.

A rather interesting move to say the least, especially considering the languages the voice dictation will support;  English, French, German, and of course now, Japanese.
