Re: Windows Phone 8.1 Update: 7 Key Facts
ts hard to see how this will shift the focus from iPhone's Siri especially considering the fact that the latter has been in use for way much longer and has many more capabilities
I agree that Cortana can't match Siri right now, but it'll get there.
Not to be a critic but, in addition, I think focusing the Cortana to just China and the UK doesn't sound that smart.
According to the article, Canada, India, and Australia will get Cortana as an "alpha release." I'm not sure how smart is that, but the reports I read here and elsewhere give Cortana good reviews; even as an alpha release.
I believe Cortana will also be available in the US market.
