Report suggests that well-reviewed voice recognition technology might port over to older devices.

After receiving a very positive response on the new voice recognition technology Siri that Apple implemented in iPhone 4s, many developers unofficially attempted to port over the software to Apple’s other devices and considerably succeeded. Now, looks like Apple might be doing the very same thing.

JailbreakNation reports from their source close to Apple that the company has now given a special version of the Siri software to their employees with it enabled on older devices like the iPad 2, iPod Touch and iPhone 4.

There’s no other information available at this point, and it’s still not confirmed whether this is true or not. But it does make sense in a way that Apple would want to make this a new standard on all their devices since it’s been called a very useful platform for smartphone or tablet users. On the other hand, Siri is pretty much the only major reason to purchase the 4s instead of holding on to the iPhone 4 or waiting for iPhone 5, so making it available for older devices especially for free will probably hurt their sales a bit.
