All of the platforms had some voice dictation/commands prior to Siri. Siri was significantly better than the rest when it came out, but WP7's TellMe already did web & local searches, calling and texting contacts, opening applications, and voice-to-text and text-to-voice dictation for instant messaging. Improving on these services is the only logical direction; they wouldn't try to make it worse.

A) iOS and the iPhone haven't been out for 6 years.
B) Microsoft was pretty dominant with Windows Mobile prior to iOS and Android. That should eliminate your couldn't.
C) iOS HAD its rule. It has now been overtaken by Android, and is unlikely to ever gain it back.
D) Your comment has to be one of the most factually errant comments I've ever seen on this site.
