So all around the Internet (or at least in the Windows Phone world) people are saying,
If you want Cortana outside of US, change your region to US.
This video suggest the same, and it also has a background audio which was used in the commercials for the Apple iPhone, how ironic.
We had other ideas, we thought of something else that works for now. I had an idea that Cortana might work if you keep your region unchanged as India and you just change all the language settings into US, at least the Bing services works that way now.
But nope, you have to set everything to US to use Cortana. No other way, no other workaround. But we din’t stop there, we tested what we endorse as an alternative idea, but found that it didn’t work that way. They are right, you only can get Cortana if you fully choose US in everything. No playing cheaters with Microsoft 🙁
Sorry if that video kind of turned out to be bad, filmed with a phone while i was trying out things, no script.
And here is a list of things that are coming with the Windows Phone 8.1, for you. You may or may not have seen this already, if you have seen some points already, fine. If something is new to you, viola! A new leak 🙂

A few things about Nokia Normandy has already been leaked. Nokia is working on an Android lowend smartphone. BGR India is claiming that Nokia has started sending Nokia Normandy, aka Nokia X to Indian developers.
It has also said that Nokia is planning for campaigning this device during Indian Premier League, one of the most exciting series of India, which will be played in April. Looking at this thing makes me feel that Nokia has a huge plan for Nokia Normandy.
The site has also said the Nokia is working on its own App Store AoL (Asha on Linux). Which has already got the top 100 Android apps.
Price is expected to be $100 which is in fact best buy for the specs. Nokia Normandy will run Android 4.4 Kitkat and sports 1GHz dual core processor. It has internal storage of 4GB and 512MB of RAM.
Nokia Normandy or Nokia X is expected to be announced in Mobile World Congress.
It is going to be interesting to see the future of the phone. What will MS do? Kill it? Feel free to say your thoughts in comments or @NokiaTips.
