Apple’s Siri no longer telling users Lumia 900 Windows Phone is best smartphone

Last week, a funny tidbit made the tech blog rounds about Apple’s iPhone voice assistant, Siri, responding to the question “What’s the best smartphone ever” with the answer of the Nokia Lumia 900 — a Windows Phone.

(That’s because the iPhone relied on Wolfram Alpha for its answer. Wolfram Alpha has the Lumia 900 as the best smartphone, based on customer reviews.)

Well, it seems Apple has put an end to that bit of fun.

Today, blogs such as Apple Insider and The Verge are reporting that, now, when you ask Siri what the best smartphone is, she gives answers such as: “The one you’re holding,” “Wait…there are other phones?” and “You’re kidding, right?”

(Ha – Looks like the Windows Phone folks are starting a #freesiri hashtag on Twitter in response to the news.)
