At the moment, Windows Phone 7 owners will have to play the patience game and wait until the first quarter of next year to be on the receiving end of the Windows Phone 7.8 update, which is as close to Windows Phone 8 as the Windows Phone 7 platform can get. On paper, Microsoft did make an official promise that users applying the Windows Phone 7.8 update will also enjoy a Windows Phone 8-like start screen alongside resizable tiles, although leaked in-house training materials from Nokia has shed additional light on upcoming details.

The lock screen will definitely be customizable, where you can easily pick up an app to update the lockscreen from time to time, which is starting to sound more and more like Windows Phone 8’s Live Apps service. As for Internet Explorer, expect it to be updated with enhanced security, but it does seem that Internet Explorer 10 will not make the cut. There will also be an MP3 editor which can be utilized so that you create your custom ringtones from MP3 files. No idea if this leaked document is 100% legit or not, but let us keep our fingers crossed, shall we not?
