Is Siri linked to a special IC to handle speech recognition? or just pure software?

Each new generation has a fancier audio CODEC chip, but they still ship the iPhone with those 50 cent earbuds :(

Rumor has it they are using a diversity TX/RX antenna such that they can switch transmission to the second antenna if reception drops on the first.

Using qualcomm chip set to consolidate the model is a smart move. Not only does it reduce the number of product to manage but also provides an upper hand against competitors. Now, iPhone 4S becomes a world phone. I have heard that the antenna location has been moved to the upper corners. I am hoping I will see coverage of antenna design in this article. Any further information is welcomed.

How about the antenna design? Is there any clue this is a new dual antenna design with improved reception?

Is it possible to know what software packages do Apple use to design this devices? I am interested in knowing ECAD, MCAD and other simulation tools.
