    Probably because it'll be nearly identical to the US one, apart from the voice.
    Liz Hurley? That'd be the sexist sounding PA ever!

    I can guess here because MS had a press conference in Beijing and they showed windows phone 8.1 update 1 with all new cortana for for China. They didn't showed the cortana for UK because it does not have any dramatic changes like one found in Chinese version.

    That's my point, they are really keeping the voice secret, maybe to stop a huge onslaught of pre release complaints ??

    I rekon it will be the stock phone voice and eventually everyone will get an expression face, they will use China to perfect expression and roll it out to the rest of Cortana but in a more western style

    They have got to differentiate Cortana from the opposition, a clever voice is not enough, and it has to be effective on large screens, a blank screen with a circle on a large display is uninspiring !

    I said it before in another thread, Xbox has ears and eyes but no face

    Who's to even say we'll even get a voice? A large bulk of Cortana is the crappy TellMe robot voice anyway.

    My 930's staying switched to the U.S. region then.
    I'd have preferred Jamie Murray or Joanna Lumley.

    Liz Hurley as Cortana uk voice, no s**t man that is one sexy lady!!!!!!!
    Can this be true?
    What's did this come from!?
    Thinking about it she does kinda look the part, the famous safety pin dress could almost have been the seed idea for the design of the outfit that Cortana almost wears :-)
    Hope it's true man, I would really like to interact with Liz :-D
