Cortana allegedly launching in China on July 30
Last week, we reported that Microsoft is close to launching Cortana in the UK and China, with a release scheduled for later this month. While no official date was provided by Microsoft, we are now hearing that the voice assistant will make its debut in China on July 30.
According to invites sent out to the Chinese media, Microsoft will be hosting a Cortana launch event in Beijing next week. The invitation for the event includes a Windows Phone placard with Cortana logo and the words "China, here I come" underneath.
Along with China, Microsoft is scheduled to bring the voice assistant to users in the UK. Before you guys inevitably ask us as to when Cortana will hit India, all that we know regarding the matter is that there is no launch date yet, and that Microsoft is actively working on bringing the service to customers in the subcontinent soon.
Users from the UK and China, are you excited about the imminent launch of Cortana in your country?

It's other countries that will pose a problem. Finally convincing Germany, and keeping Italy and South Africa on board should also be a top priority... think of this moment again, when we revisit this topic 6 to 12 months from now.
When my children were born (3yr old and a 7 month old) we were given the weight in kilograms and we had to convert it to pounds and ounces so our parents could understand. Also, milk is sold in litres in Tesco and Asda. Has been for years now.
I remember that was the first thing I looked at when people in the UK were told they had to use metric.
Mystery...guess in 2020
