Intelligent Cortana: How it Interacts, Bing Integration, Power saving, Cloud integration and more.

More is revealed yet again about Cortana, the upcoming virtual Windows Phone voice-assistant with intelligence. WindowsPhoneLovers has posted screenshots of codes and some interaction patterns which provide insights into the brains of Cortana.

It can tune in music for you, take orders, save alarms and reminders and modify them as well, make calendar entries, write messages and call friends. It can use maps and Bing search to find nearby restaurants, places of interest. It can search your phone and web as well ( Universal search hinted again ).

Cortana is tightly integrated to Bing Account and the profile data saved with Bing Account remains synced across devices. Even if one deletes the data on phone the cloud profile data remains intact.
