Samsung is well known for mocking Apple in its smartphone adverts, and now Microsoft is at it with its latest Windows Phone advert.
The video below shows Microsoft Cortana up against Apple’s Siri, although it looks like Microsoft may not have done an exact test of the two voice activated assistants, and instead used some artistic license.
Microsoft’s Cortana is currently only available in the U.S. at the moment, where as Apple’s Siri is available in a wide range of countries.
We are e4xpecting Microsoft to launch Cortana in China this week, and it is also headed to the UK some time over the next few months, although as yet we do not have an exact release date for the UK. The developer preview of Microsoft Cortana is headed to the UK soon.
We also heard that the UK version of Cortana will not use the voice of Jen Taylor, who was the voice of Cortana in the Halo games, instead the UK version will have a British accent.
Microsoft recently announced that they would be streamlining Windows for all of their platforms, and Cortana is also rumored to be headed to more than just smartphones, which will include the Xbox, desktop and laptops, and also tablets.
