Apple learned from its MobileMe rollout:
Don't try to deliver everything to everybody at the same time.
Likely, there are 100 million pre-iPhone 4S iDevices capable of running Siri.
Apple's Siri servers were overloaded with 1/25th of that many iPhone 4S sales in the 1st weekend.
104 million iDevices hitting Siri's servers would have brought them to their knees...
Not to mention 100 million iDevices upgrading to iOS 5, immediately, just so they could access Siri (had it been included for other than the iP4S)..
There is a reason that Eddie Cue was promoted to SVP!
