    Hey, so I was watching the Windows Phone 8.1 reveal and noticed they said Cortana will only be US only for sometime... Does that mean the 8.1 preview will only be for people living in the US seeing as Cortana is included with 8.1?

    I think the UK will get it but certain parts of Cortana will be unavailable.

    Oh, I truly hope so... I have waited way to long for 8.1 just for Microsoft to turn around and be like nope! US only.

    Well, considering Cortana replaces Bing on the search button I would say it's a safe assumption that we will be able to do the things that TellMe could like web searches and launch apps, but I think the other features won't work until the backend servers for the UK support it.

    Notice how the personalization tab in the settings, which has settings for Cortana, on the Bing website is missing for UK users.

    I think we will get WP8.1 without Cortana, the way Microsoft are talking it seems to be a separate app.
