China launch of Cortana rumored for end of July

Cortana, Microsoft's virtual assistant for Windows Phone 8.1, could be heading to China. A report from Zol claims Microsoft is preparing an event on July 30th in the country, and though it appears the software will keep the same logo and basic functionality as the version serving the United States, it is believed the name will be changed to "Huna" as part of the localization efforts.
