As the Windows Phone 7.8 release is edging closer, leaks are starting to intensify. Beta builds, Windows Phone 7.8-running Nokia Lumia 510 and promotional materials for the latter there are plenty sources to feed us with spicy rumors.

The Lumia 510 brochure is the most interesting piece, though its in Finnish. It does say the Lumia 510 will have a new Start screen with more available color themes, though. It also confirms the Windows Phone 7.8 wont be the last firmware update youll get, probably to reassure the people who intend to buy the phone that its getting long-term support.

Windows Phone 7.8 leaks from various places

The guys over at managed to get their hands on a Windows Phone 7.8-running Lumia 510 and confirmed a few details as well. In addition to the resizable Live Tiles, re-designed system apps (Office, Xbox Games, Store, etc.), 10 new theme colors, well also get a new boot screen matching Windows Phone 8 style and Live Lock Screen Wallpaper, which was previously introduced within Windows Phone 8. There is no info if that one will work with third-party apps though.

In case you are interested the build number of Windows Phone 7.8 is 7.10.8858.136. As the rumor has it, the update is already released to the manufacturers and it shouldn't be long before it starts seeding to the end users.
