Cortana Developer Preview comes to the U.K. for Windows Phone 8.1 in less than two weeks
Right now, only those in the U.S. with Windows Phone 8.1 are able to use Cortana. In his conversations on Twitter, program manager Ash said that while developing Cortana, Microsoft learned a lot about scaling; that is certainly one of the issues that the company would have to face when rolling out a project as ambitious as a virtual personal manager, to a large number of countries world-wide.
No word from Microsoft yet, as to when non-developers in the U.K. will be able to access Cortana.

According to my personal experience, Cortana pretty much works great. Comparable to Google Now and Siri. Though I only use it for the occasional setting up of calendar invites and looking up trivial stuff.

I'm hoping ms will bring Cortana over to Android...I'd pay for it even.

What ? That's weird....you always blame Microsoft, but now you want Cortana to come on the android.

I don't like the company, just like Apples business infrastructure.
I like Wp and IOs, but if only if it was open source and had all the features of Android.
Once you use Android and it's totall openness, it's hard reverting back to closed restricted platform.
No Customer Roms
No way to overclock Cpu, Gpu, Ram, Nand-drive, voltage settings, command script, VM-Heap, and so many others, which Apple and Microsoft, will never let you modify or gain access to inner roots.

Well said. Android is the only mobile platform that is largely open.
I was using a friend's iPad and trying to browse the web with Safari and was shocked by all the ads. Life is too short to have to deal with that sort of crap every day like the dumb iZombies do.

yeah more like "Android is the only mobile platform that is largely open" to Malware, viruses and complete laginess!
