Cortana virtual assistant coming to US Windows Phones early 2014, Europe and Asia later on


The upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 update is seeing its fair share of leaks as its launch nears, and the latest water in the rumor mill gets added by a new leakster, Xeŕo, who spilled some more of the inside info on Twitter.

First off, there is a picture of the new status icons, which confirm what was leaked before from Joe Belfiore. Second, the Cortana virtual butler that will no doubt leverage Microsoft's stellar voice recognition capacity that's been gathering dust in the R&D labs, will not appear until early 2014. 


That's in the US, but if you live in Europe and Asia, you'll have to wait until later into next year to get Cortana speaking in your native language - 44 of them, to be exact, the amount that Bing flaunts at the moment.
