Apple fixes Siri bug which named Nokia Lumia 'best smartphone'

Apple has fixed a bug that caused personal assistant app Siri to declare that Nokia Lumia 900 was the best smartphone ever.

Last week, some users reported that Siri said 'Lumia' when it was questioned about the best smart phone ever, Stuff.co.nz reports.

However, Apple has appeared to fix the problem, because after repeated attempts, Siri now only answers with either "You''re kidding, right?" or "Wait ... there are other phones?"

Siri uses search engine WolphramAlpha to calculate the best response to any given question.

Based on customer reviews from across the web, WolphramAlpha ranked the Nokia Lumia 900 as the "best" smartphone currently on offer.

Apple's own iPhone 4S, the only model that Siri appears on, did not feature on the WolphramAlpha's list of best smartphones.

Despite the fact that the quirk appears to have been resolved, Apple has not publically confirmed that it has altered Siri's response.
