Our own Jaime Rivera has already whipped up a full preview of iOS 6, but I thought I’d take a ground-level look at just one of its features- specifically, how Siri feels on a tablet. Siri bursts onto the scene in iOS 6 with new features and a new format for the big screen of the iPad, so it’s time to take a look at what she offers this time around.

Until a few days ago, I’d never used one of these latest-generation voice command applications. S Voice has been my only exposure to this brave new world of vocally-powered control. While I was mildly impressed at how many corners of the phone could feel the warm touch of S Voice, I didn’t feel a compelling need to explore many of them. And when I did, the lackluster performance of the app reminded me why I just stick to tapping and swiping most of the time.
