Windows Phone 7.8 may be launched tomorrow
| by Aaron Almeida |
The latest version of Windows Phone was launched recently, and later, a number of handsets sporting the new OS have hit the shelves. The question on the minds of those who purchased handsets before the arrival of Windows Phone 8 is when their handsets will be updated to Windows Phone 7.8. As per a report by Tonis Tech Blog, this operating system could be launched on Wednesday, thus giving users a clearer time frame for receiving the update.
Courtesy update coming soon
None of the existing Windows Phone 7 devices, including the Nokia 900, are eligible for a Windows Phone 8 update. In order to avoid a riot outside its stores, Microsoft promptly announced Windows Phone 7.8, a sort of ‘value pack’, if you will, for existing devices. All handsets running WP 7.5 or Mango will be upgradeable to WP 7.8, and one of the new features that the update brings with it is the new customisable homescreen from WP 8. Users of the Lumia 800 and similar devices will be able to resize the homescreen widgets as well as choose between different colour schemes for better personalisation. This applies to all Nokia Lumia handsets.
