Japanese tech giant adds Cortana shortcut to new range of laptops

The button, which is pretty much just a search key that ties directly into Cortana's voice recognition.

Toshiba Satellite Fusion 15

Its no secret that Cortana is going to be a big feature of Windows 10 when it launches next month.

Toshiba believes that it will be so important that its updated line of Satellite laptops include dedicated function key just for launching Cortana.

Sources say the button, which is pretty much just a search key that ties directly into Cortana's voice recognition, is located above the number row of Toshiba's new C Series, L Series, S Series, Fusion, and Radius laptops arriving this month.

It essentially does what the standard Windows-C shortcut in Windows 10 does with just one button. All of the notebooks also have dual array microphones, which enhance the voice recognition capabilities of Cortana and improve video and audio calls made from the laptops.

These laptops will all launch with Windows 8.1, but are all eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 10 for a full year from when it becomes available on July 29th.

According to sources, the convertible notebooks also support Windows 10 continuum feature that automatically switches the system from desktop to tablet mode when they are flipped into a tablet position.

The Radius 14 starts at $584.99, while the Radius 15, which can be configured with a 4K display, starts at $842.99.
