Windows Phone 8.1 features might include Cortana personal assistant
Since it was leaked people have only really been talking about one Windows Phone 8.1 feature and that's Cortana, a reported personal assistant that will go far beyond what either Siri or S-Voice are capable of by integrating with your smartphone, Xbox One, tablet and more.
The latest Cortana leak comes courtesy of Xero who claims to have a prototype screenshot of Cortana in action on an as-yet un-released Microsoft Lumia smartphone.
