It will be a while before Windows Phone 7.8 update is released

Windows Phone 8 might be officially out, but the Windows Phone 7.8 update is nowhere to be found. Microsoft even ignored the matter during the press conference yesterday.

Latest online rumor has it, the Windows Phone 7.8 will be released a few weeks after the first WP8 devices hit the shelves. Then we would have to wait for the first wave of cheap WP7.8 devices that will run the release out of the box and later all old-gen Windows Phone handsets will get the update as an OTA or via Zune.

We guess all of the previous Windows Phone owners would have to wait at least a month to get the goodies brought by the 7.8 update. Let's hope the update will be worth the wait.

Oh well. They should have done 7.8 first. Unless 8.0 isn't that much better. Early adopters would have bought new anyway.

Can't agree more. Microsoft hasn't appreciate those customers like us that willing to use a mobile OS that isn't popular in the first place because we believe that Microsoft has created an innovation but they have forgotten us. Adieu WP...
