Siri touts Lumia 900 as 'best smartphone ever'

Siri, the virtual personal assistant built into Apple's iPhones, is reportedly claiming that the Nokia Lumia 900 is 'the best smartphone ever'.

A number of users have been referred to reviews praising the Nokia Windows phone when posing the question to Siri. It appears that Siri is using statistics and data from search engine Wolfram Alpha to deliver the answer, and seeing as there are a high number of user reviews praising the Nokia phone, the Lumia is coming out on top.

Nokia originally unveiled the Lumia 900 back in January of this year at the Consumer Electronics Show, where it was awarded the Best Smartphone award. This may also have been a factor in Siri's answer.

The reports are likely to be welcomed by Nokia, which has been struggling to regain its market share over recent months as Apple and Samsung continue to dominate the smartphone market.

While it still has some way to go, the Lumia range launched in collaboration with Microsoft, have been well-received. Although it remains to be seen if consumers will show sufficient interest in the handsets to turn around the Finnish company's fortunes.
