    It is launching US first with some regions getting it later in 2014, and some getting it in 2015.

    Hopefully it comes to Denmark when it comes to the UK! My friend could certainly taunt me with that.

    you can always change regions and build on your skills by learning a bit of the american accent......sure the ill informed will say there is no feature and disregard windows phones but if they rreally want they will make the effort and change regions and get features............ a virtual american citizen here.........

    This is probably because they're going to have to program Cortana to understand retroflex consonants. I don't think people understand why Cortana isn't going to be released everywhere. It's because her programming isn't going to allow her to understand anyone who diverges from standard American English. I wouldn't be surprised if she struggles with people from the South. To be fair, voice recognition isn't easy.

    It's coming to the UK later in 2014. I think it's coming to the UK in summer 2014.

    So what will those regions get when pressing the search button? I'm in the US but curious. Will it just be the Cortana app minus the voice commands I'm assuming?

    Oh wow! That's crazy, I didn't realize you guys were already missing so much. Do you at least have Scout, Music, and Vision on the Bing screen?

    Scout is useless when location is turned on as microsoft has no data for indian resturants and stuff like that.....music id is also not present...luckily have set it to US region and hence have it....bing videos that you get by flicking right or left are also fun to watch....hope region parity comes soon....

    Nah I meant vision for scanning text or barcodes and such. But still that's a lot of the main functionality I use on a day to day basis I can't believe you guys are going without.

    I won't have to wait as long as you it seems then. I'm British, and live in the UK. So I'll be getting it come summer time.

    Cortana doesnt seem to have much of a problem recognising accents spoken in English, in one of the demos one guy had a heavy .. I think mexican? accent and it understood him perfectly fine. I guess it's about the fine tuning for other languages and local information that will take time..

    Vocals aren't the problem they have already done that work in the original Kinect. The problem is Bing lacks functionality when you're outside the US. The Bing team has a lot of work to do and I think Android will beat WP8.1 in having all the abilities of Cortana.

    Android will have everything Cortana has plus 10 more features before Cortana is rolled out in more than one continent. By the time Cortana goes worldwide, Siri and Google Now will already have jokes about Cortana that may have gone viral. What Microsoft is failing with consistently and royally is - timing.

    How do you know that? You haven't tested Cortana, it may be better than Now, it may be not.. Plus, it's still in beta..
