Windows Insiders Will Get First Go At Cortana Powered Alexa Competitor

Cortana remains one of the better voice assistants, as well as one of the most travelled. You can access her smarts from your Windows 10 PC, Windows 10 phones, select Android devices and you Xbox.

Microsoft isn't done there though. The presence of a  Harman Kardon speaker with Alexa like capability, powered by Cortana, has been doing the rounds for about a year. Now several Microsoft fansites are claiming Windows Insiders are being lined up to try this new device out first.

It would certainly be a nice reward for Insiders loyalty.

Just one fly in the ointment though. Why would Samsung owned HK be plotting a Cortana Powered speaker, when Samsung has just revealed it's Bixby voice assistant on the Galaxy S8 and claimed it would be journeying beyond the phone very soon?
