It seems Siri's admiration of the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone did not sit well with Apple.

As of Friday, whenever an iPhone user would ask Siri "what's the best smartphone ever?", it would pull up search results pointing them to the Windows smartphone from carrier AT&T. The same answer applied when using "cell phone" instead of smartphone.

Ask Siri that same question today, as we did, and here are some of the answers you might get:

"The one you're holding."

"You're kidding, right?"

CNet was among the first spotting the change, adding Apple hasn't publicly confirmed Siri's new line of thinking.

Siri originally based her answer on search results from Wolfram Alpha, which used customer reviews to conclude the Nokia Lumia as the best smartphone (or cell phone) ever. In fact, the search engine is sticking by its claim, based on results from their Web counterpart.
