There is just something about the spoken word that is binding, although with the advent of lawyers, it is proof that no man is as good as his or her word any more. Samsung, however, has an idea on how promises work, and has let out the word that their Windows Phone 7.5 devices will receive the Windows Phone 7.8 update, which does offer a close look to Windows Phone 8 cosmetically, but when it comes to the workings underneath the hood, they are very different creatures altogether.
The thing is, we do not know just exactly when that is going to happen, so we will just have to play the patience card at this point in time. Don’t you think for it to be rather strange that Samsung has specified in the past that its smartphones which are currently running on Mango or better would be able to enjoy this “bonus”, when they have already received such software? Windows Phone 7.8 for everyone I guess, and perhaps it will be an early Christmas.
