Cortana packing her bags for Europe, should arrive in France earlier than expected
There is some hope that Microsoft will make a single announcement covering a number of European countries. A website for Cortana users has popped up in Dutch for the Netherlands, and is also available in Portuguese, Spanish and French.
Microsoft has been spending a lot of its ad money in the U.S., running commercials showing Cortana taking on Siri. We would expect Microsoft to take this battle overseas once Cortana is available in most countries.
