Latest Cortana ad shows Siri having 'Dot View' envy

The latest Windows Phone ad not only pits Cortana against Apple's Siri, but shows off some of the features that the optional HTC Dot View Cover can do on the Windows Phone-powered HTC One (M8) for Windows. The ad starts with Siri looking in the mirror, admiring her prettiness, and goes on to the One (M8) for Windows showing off the features of the Dot View Cover, like activating Cortana, receiving notifications, and answering calls. In terms of similar cases for the iPhone? The fun stops there as it looks like other iPhone covers just muffle up Siri.

The best part is that from now through January 31, 2015, HTC is throwing in a free limited edition Dot View Cover with the purchase of the One (M8) for Windows.

Thanks to James for the tip.
