Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL) Siri is wildly popular for asking fun questions like "what's the meaning of life," "do I have a secret admirer," and "what's the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?" The best question asked recently was "what is the best smartphone ever?"

Siri, sharp as a tack, didn't answer "iPhone," which you have to respect. Instead, kudos went out to Nokia (NYSE: NOK) and its Lumia 900 (specifically, in cyan color).

Reasoning is that Siri gets its information from Wolfram Alpha (we're wondering where Wolfram Omega is. Guess we'll have to ask Siri), which gets its information from globally submitted answers, blogs, websites,, and what have you.

Apple is indicated lower Friday morning, though Nokia is flat.
