Microsoft COO reminds us that Siri thought the Lumia 900 was the best phone ever
We all probably remember having a little chuckle when it was found that asking Siri “What’s the best smartphone ever?” resulted in the Nokia Lumia 900. In case you missed that somehow, Microsoft COO, Kevin Turner, made it a point to bring it up again at yesterday’s WPC event.

In his presentation on the strength of Windows Phone, he decided to play the infamous clip in front of a crowd of 16,000 people, who subsequently had a little laugh themselves. Turner mentioned that shortly after the video went viral, Apple sent out an update to change it.

“Siri got a gag order. They’ve suppressed Siri and it’s now brainwashed into something else,” he said.

You can check out the video below to see that segment from his presentation. While the original Siri kerfuffle happened all the way back in May, can you really blame Microsoft for trying to keep this one afloat just a little bit longer?

Pretty big stretch when you have to hang your hat on Siri for a recommendation. Apple can always respond that beta software is not infallible.

Then they would be admitting they released a product that wasn't working properly. Apple will never admit that.

Maybe Siri realised that the Lumia 900 wasnt the best anymore without a WP8 update

Now I don't hate Microsoft, but those stats are about as legit as Apple's "Macbook is the world's bestselling laptop". It's not a lie, just very screwed up truth. And customer satisfaction doesn't prove nuts about how good a device is, it just shows that people are satisfied with those basic functions of the Lumia.

If its not available on tmo, sprint, or Verizon, it doesn't matter.

So instead of releasing hard sales numbers, he has to rely on a half-assed talking assistant's opinion.

Seeing what their marketshare is, I cant blame them for trying to keep that little glitch afloat.
