    Highly unlikely it will be today, especially being the 4th July.
    Don't the US have a 3 day weekend?

    The post from WindowsPhoneUK twitter account is not very encouraging and optimistic... =(

    WindowsPhoneUK: @RioInacia hi there, Cortana is arriving to the UK later in 2014.

    So from that we can deduce that in the world of Microsoft the word "soon" is anything up to 6 months..........lying bastards........

    From memory, Talderon posted that it could be released sometime around July/August, which would qualify as both soon(tm) and later(tm). That's the target timeframe, I believe.

    *Talderon, please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong!

    I'd have to disagree with those timescales somewhat. According to Marcus Ash on the 15th June "Cortana is coming to the UK in weeks, not months"

    https://uk.news.yahoo.com/cortana-co...0.html#h22mQsD

    So by that reasoning, anything past the 15th July would make it more than a month i.e. it becomes months rather than weeks....ergo past 15 July and Marcus gains the nickname pinnochio

    Actually that's wrong, working in sales where I have to use time frames for availability/delivery, I disagree.

    In order for a time frame to be called "months" there has to be more than one month in that time frame (eg. two months up), in this case the minimum requirement for two full months would be 15 June -> ~15 August.
    Now anything below two full months is downgraded to weeks (it never is "one month" or "one month and one/two/three weeks"), as one month is composed of ~4 weeks, anything going beyond that while refraining from passing two months falls in the time frame of weeks. In this case, "weeks" can mean anything from 2 weeks up to 7/8 weeks. And in this particular case, since people are spitballing a release date @ July-August, that sound more like ~6 weeks, witch makes Marcus Ash's statement of "weeks, not months" valid. :)

    Bad news guys... Microsoft: No Cortana for UK Windows Phone 8.1 users in July | Windows Phone Central

    I am so disappointed... Was waiting for it for ages, since Joe said it will come with official 8.1 update... and that "soon" tweet... "weeks, not months"... awful...
