WP 7.8 update might come in a few weeks, WP7.9 in the works? - read the full textNokia can't (or more likely doesn’t want to) keep Windows Phone 7.8 info under wraps - new info coming from the "head of Nokia Asia Pacific Developer" suggests we will see the update much sooner than the previously rumored Q1 2013 timeframe. Microsoft never really announced a solid launch date...

So, all that discussion about WP, makes me wonder, do you really Android users, care, about your OS? You seem to be angry about MS-Nokia collaboration why? It is your opinion that WP is crap, but you use Android, which needs sci fi phones to work fast. Tell me, is a quad core realy needed today? YES it is, just to run Android smoothly LOL!

Microsoft is playing a dangerous game: They have the less attractive product in the market, both in quality and in usability (apps) and the only thing they offer for the stupid few that gave them a chance and became a joke... is another laugh: "Yep, the phone you bought is junk, but maybe you would like to try our new junk". Well even if I'm stupid enough to take the chance, I'm certainly not rich enough to but new phone every new update...I'll wait till IOS and android will disapear before I'll be ready to take a chance again.

guys, there is no competition between Android and WPs. They are systematically all good at their position. If Android is too good n WPs r nothing but craps(according to android users), then cool, why do u(android users) so worried about WP8 features instead of ignoring them?!!
Atleast Lions never worried about Rats!

Doesn't that just give you goose bumps?!

Better to keep it off to save battery and turn it on
for games.
So Android is smarter for battery then which is what
we wanted

Hope these updates are all real. Perhaps version 7.95 as well? Wouldn't say "no" to that! :)

Most of my girfriends own samsungs and I`m not impressed by them, they lag, android is flat and only icons like the iphone, nothing special! So I went to see the nl 800 and anfter my time with it I`m so waiting for the update to buy it! It`s so fast and fluid! And thank god for no tupid skins like tuchwiz
