Windows Phone 8.1

With the Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers out in the open and available for download, we're sure many of you are thoroughly enjoying the highly requested features included in the release. A major new feature is Cortana and we'd like to know how you plan to utilize the new personal assistant.

Voice assistants usually (as the name suggests) require some type of speech input from the user but not everyone likes this or feels comfortable speaking into a smartphone (when not actively calling someone). Luckily, Microsoft has made it so you can either use speech or text to interact with Cortana.

Which do you prefer?
