Microsoft is all worked up about preparing upgrade of their operating system for smartphones based on Windows Phone 8.1 version, which should be available in early 2014.

The new version shoulbe beside the correction of errors bring a personal assistant that users will be controlling by voice commands. Previous versions of the Windows Phone operating system had support for basic voice commands, but the technology codenamed Cortana should represent a big step forward, because it will apparently learn and adapt to the user.
