    Okay can anybody tell me here what are the drawbacks of changing "Phone Language" and "Country/Region".
    Anything else that needs to be changed?
    I feel like updating to 8.1 but just not yet..and just cant wait till 2015 to get Cortana. So if there are minor drawbacks then not a problem...

    You should probably wait until its released. There are always drawbacks in a preview, always. If you don't want them, stand pat.

    Its what beta testers do. They whine about things that is either new and or different. They really get cheesed off when they discover the smart phone is smarter than they are. For the record, most of what is in this is good. Some of it, really good. But its full of debug code. Its being tested and the analysis of it is being returned to Redmond which comes at a small price. For the most part, I could live with what it is. It is still buttery smooth on my 920. But if you are one who gets their feelings crushed easily, stand pat.

    If you do change your Country/Region to US and the Regional Format to English US, The currency would become $, the date would be shown as MM/DD/YYYY and the temperature in Fahrenheit. Nothing else apart from this would change. I have been using the Developer Preview since 2 days now and am yet to face any serious issue.

    Great I read in wpc's article only that you can keep Regional format to India English and still have Cortana work. Anyway temperature is a minor issue can always change that in bing weather so not worried just last question hope there aren't any issue regarding location services?
    Anyway thanks man you were of great help :)
    Definitely getting Cortana when 8.1 is launched officially :D
