Nokia: Windows Phone 7.8 not coming out until 2013 - read the full textA few days ago Lumia 800 owners got some exciting news. There were several reports of devices receiving the long awaited Windows Phone 7.8 update. As it turns out though, this was merely a test run, rather than the real deal.

Hello gys..
I have updated my lumia 710 & lumia 510 from Nokia care in India. 7.8 is available for entire old lumia series.
Major changes are home screen,Bluetooth share app(from Nokia,and camera performance the most I like, no yellow tint in snaps.and office app and bootup screen is like windows 8.

6 month delay from announcement means this is the issue.

And version on 4.1 and above , yes there is no lag.
Or they lie or aren't cleaning the dalvik cache or
doing a regular factory reset.

2013 is the year of 1080p and true smoothness
with high end superchips driving Android.

Wew. .after JacktheBITTER, here comes Droided. .lol. .bro, some of the phones are better-off with Gingerbread, and youre saying that lag on Android would be a Lie? Maybe? On those flagships only with your overrated 4/8cores, 2Gbrams. And you can't say that Ms would cancel the update coz' some of the Lumia owners esp. in India got the Update. When will you learn Droided? :)

> In reply to [deleted post]Because google is working on a worldwide rollout
for all device to 4.0 soon.

Just they will release that when it's ready.
They are busy helping Apple out with their maps so users are Ok with the delay.

I am from India.

The new features I found out are

Bluetooth File Transfer

Ringtone maker

New WP 8 UI

New WP boot Screen

IE search option can be changed to Google

More Colours in the Theme

There is new selection in Settings called Network but its the settings for Call and SMS

Nokia Drive got an update.

And I feel an overall performance change, in the name of Speed as well as Battery back up....

this will be cancelled I think.
And Microsoft hope these guys will just buy a WP8.

It's only single core anyway. LOL it's soon 2013.


Lag in Android is NOW a lie, told only by jealous WP uses as their OS is very laggy
Tiles hide the lag and stutter

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2012-12-18 20:32 from MVg6 - click to readyes you're right... only the lumia 920 P.R 1 update has been confirmed, BUT there is likely a full WP8 update this month as well. See this link.. right now it's more of a rumour, but it will likely turn out to be true because many of the bug fixes needed on the lumia 920 are NOT just applicable to the lumias but rather all WP8 phones.

Regardless, the point is, android talks about one update per OS revision every 6months, then gives them to you 8-10 months after being released.. here WP8 was released about 2months ago, and HTC already got an update, lumia's are getting an update, and a full OS update is likely goign to be happening before end of this year or in month of jan. WP8 is FAR ahead in updates than any other OS period.

Instead of copy-pasting some labtest here, share some end-user experience. Oh? How can you compare if you haven't used a Wp. Your only relying on Word-by-word comparison. Take your words on real life test. :)
