Nokia continues the Siri bashing w/ new Lumia ads showing off Cortana


Nokia, like the rest of the smartphone industry, is no stranger to mocking its biggest competitor in ads. Today we get two new spots posted to the company’s YouTube account that highlight the Windows Phone Cortana assistant feature while mocking Apple’s Siri feature in the process.

The first ad called “Lost” highlights Cortana’s ability to automatically remind users when to leave for appointments based of calendar and traffic data. The second spot, titled “Remind Me”, shows Cortana sending reminder notifications associated with texts and calls they are receiving.


Nokia isn’t the only company iPhone bashing today, BlackBerry just wrapped up its Passport launch event where it took time to compare the device directly to the iPhone 6 on stage.

    Wrong timing.

    Siri’s just improved by leaps and bounds in iOS8; its response speeds to spoken commands is on a par with the fastest, which is Google Now and not Cortana or BB Voice(or whatever the latter is called).

    The icing on the cake, however is the Shazaam integration which works even from the lock screen, giving very accurate results when time is of the essence.
