    From the looks of it its a personal assistant. It collects the notifications, reminds you of things and also acts as a voice guide, search and command. Just like the Cortana in Halo. Damn, if its that functional, I can't wait for WP 8.1 to come....

    I'm excited but I sure hope it is polished when released. Potential to create a big wow factor in the industry but they'll only get one shot to make a great first impression.

    Maybe they are combing the UK for where you can actually buy a nokia 1020 on launch day.

    If it uses Cortana's voice, I bet that alone would cause a huge spike in sales.

    But I imagine that would be very difficult to do.

    What bothers me about this is that WPC hasn't picked it up. I know our site isn't the beat all to end all, but since WP8 began to be a big news item, they only report on credible news that they believe is backed up by numerous sources.


    I know only a little about this, but I think it would be a blast if this was true.

    they should use cortana's voice and put up a 3d avatar that moves her mouth and hands when she talks to you, and she should look like she does in halo. If they did this, I'm sure all halo fans would have to have a wp as their next phone...

    I hope they dont, looks very cheap would prefer a more siri like look but better animated, more useful and funnier

    well, I think cortana would be funnier as she has some funny lines here and there in halo, I don't think her character model looks cheap, but perhaps we don't need the avatar...lets just hope if they put her in wp that she doesn't eventually go crazy and make your phone self-destruct or something...

    On release day, Microsoft should give everyone a free Cortana for their Xbox avatars.
