Are you looking forward to Windows Phone 7.8? The update is almost bittersweet considering that Windows Phone 7.x owners would not be upgraded to Windows Phone 8, thus making the update seem more or less like the next best thing. Now if you’re looking forward to receiving the 7.8 update on your Nokia Lumia device, you could be in for a wait, although that wait is expected to be short. Speaking to PocketGamer.biz, Nokia revealed that the rollout of the Windows Phone 7.8 update for Nokia Lumia devices was “imminent”, but specific release dates were in the hands on Microsoft.
In a statement released by Nokia, “With Windows Phone 7.8 beginning to ship pre-loaded on Nokia Lumia smartphones, we will naturally be deploying the software to our factories for product rollout […] Microsoft announced that it is working closely with hardware and carrier partners to get it tested, approved, and rolled out to as many devices as possible in early 2013.” Granted this isn’t the announcement of the update many have expected, but we guess good on Nokia for keeping their customers up-to-date on the, well, update.
