  Siri was addon feature. Not a replacement of a core app. Again, if a 500Mhz phone with half the memory can run navigation while multitasking over a 144kbps 2G internet connection 3 years ago, why can't it now? Apple's that inept? Google's that far ahead? I'll give you the answer. YOU DON"T KNOW. Frankly you're just another person with an opinion and an internet connection .          Touche. 
  Get a grip. Apple stood on stage making this a centerpiece for iOS 6 and then slapped half the installed userbase in the face saying you can't have it forking a core functionality of a preinstalled app. That's NOT consistent and not 'a stupid reason'. They are offering no explanation, leaving people like you to make poorly supported excuses as to why it's being done. The Siri situation I could understand, but this is entirely different and I don't think people are being...
    This has nothing to do with that. In this case we are talking about a functionality that we know many other devices (including standalone) with much less specs run well. In this case, it doesn't pass muster and people should hold Apple accountable to that standard. 
  The iPhone 4 has 512MB of memory unlike the 3GS and iPad with 256. The CPU is more than a mild overclock as well. The A4, while a Cortex A8 is an entirely different design from it's predecessor in the 3GS.  The only common denominator is the SGX535 GPU.
That's crap. If the original Motorola Droid with a 550Mhz processor and 256MB of RAM running Android 2 in 2009 could handle Google Maps Nav Turn by Turn WITH voice actions, it's far from a stretch to expect Apple to get it right on a device with double the horsepower and specs, 3 years later, on a superior, MORE efficient platform. 
  Keep in mind it's still the just the first beta.
In all seriousness, how is this not some type of fragmentation and cause customer confusion?    Siri works here, turn by turn works there but not here...come on. Apple is slowly moving away from that unified coherent experience that separates them from the rest. Crap phones from the 3 years ago with half the specs can handle turn by turn, so the guise of technical limitations seems ridiculous. This doesn't change my opinion of Apple and I'm sure they expect everyone...
You essentially could do most of that between Google Music and Google Drive, not that I'm suggesting it's superior. 
  Well if this accurate from the other article:     Then it does make business sense. However I'm with you in that I'd prefer it stuck around.
  Considering it's a big part of my day job, you'd be fired on the same day for thinking so around here and building a report from it.  But you're entitled to your own opinion. Keep in mind Neilson uses no less than 70,000 for the same study.
