No Siri for iPhone 4 – More proof that Apple is done with 4th gen gadget?

After reporting yesterday that Canadian network TELUS will not be restocking its original iPhone 4 16GB model after the current supply is depleted, an outspoken blogger at Apple has said that voice command software Siri will not become available on last season’s iPhone 4 – thus further backing the idea that fifth generation iPhone 4S will become the standard.

Apple blog-man Michael Steeber states that the company “currently have no plans to support older devices” with the personal assistant application for iOS 5 not set to make an appearance on the successor model iPhone – much to the disappointment of early owners who were eager to get their chat on with their Apple smartphone.

Steeber continues, saying putting it simply: “Engineering has provided the following feedback regarding this issue: Siri only works on iPhone 4S” – the general theme of the blog, and the feeling we get from Apple’s recent attitude towards the fourth gen is that the iPhone 4 is no longer in focus, so no effort will be made to port the voice software across. This comes despite Apple aficionados and tech-heads suggesting that the bugs preventing Siri’s backwards compatibility aren’t that hard to fix.
