Siri Loves Nokia, But Does Nokia Return the Love?


Siri thinks that Nokia's Lumia 900 is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Why? And what does the Nokia Lumia think of Siri?

The Next Web revealed today that when iPhone 4S users ask Siri the question, "What is the best smartphone ever?" Siri responds with a result listing for the aforementioned Nokia (NYSE: NOK) phone.

If you haven't heard, this hilarious outcome is the work of Wolfram Alpha, a "computational knowledge engine," which Siri uses to produce answers to certain questions. Wolfram Alpha's info comes directly from user reviews. And guess what? The Lumia 900 is one of the highest-rated smartphones on the web right now. Thus, Siri gave the only answer that it could possibly provide.

Still, you have to wonder why Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) didn't think of this ahead of time and pre-program a few comical and/or sarcastic responses for this very question. Was Apple too busy programming Siri to tell us where to a hide body to worry about anything else?

In any case, now that Siri has made her love known, we should ask ourselves: how does the Lumia 900 feel about Siri?

Unfortunately, the Lumia 900 does not have a Siri-like personal assistant built into its software, so we may never know its true feelings. But I'm guessing that if it could respond, its answer would be something like…

"Of course I love you, Siri! You just told iPhone users to buy a Lumia 900. How could I not love you?"

I really hope they get together. They'd have the cutest kids, don't you think?
