    I am confused about the release of Cortana on the L930. A number of websites states that Cortana will be a feature of this phone upon release in Australia. I know that Windows 8.1 will be out of the box upon release, but is it true for Cortanta too? Or do these Australian websites have it wrong? I believe one of them was quoting the Build Conference recently held. Here is a link:

    So are you saying that a L930 will never have Cortana in Australia, or anywhere else outside of America? Did I get that right?

    no, he did not say never. He said not until 2015.

    If you're part of the developer preview, Cortana is available in Alpha form as of update 1. I'm guessing that the beta release will probably coincide with the commercial availability of update 1, or when WP9 or the next set of updates to WP8.1 are made publicly available.

    But...why would you bother? Unless you have a hang up about using the developer preview, there's no reason why you just can't join and get Cortana support in a official capacity. Jus sayin' 😊
