Andy Rubin Doesn’t Believe Your Phone Should Be An Assistant

Apple managed to really stir things up with its Siri voice-enabled personal assistant on the iPhone 4S and, after Microsoft’s Andy Lees find the service “not super useful”, it’s Andy Rubin’s time to not be overwhelmed by Siri.

The Android Chief doesn’t believe “that your phone should be an assistant” and said in an interview that “your phone is a tool for communicating. You shouldn’t be communicating with the phone; you should be communicating with somebody on the other side of the phone”.

Siri is most definitely one of the main selling points of the new iPhone 4S (aside from the new camera and chip) but Rubin thinks a phone should be used to talk to other people rather than talking to the device itself. “We’ll see how pervasive it gets”.
