Just as its previously teased, Microsoft officially announced the eagerly awaited Windows Phone 7.8 update is going to see the day of light in early 2013.
The guys at Redmond didn't specify an exact date of the launch, but we now know for sure that Windows Phone 7.8 won't be coming for Christmas.
In the announcement at its official blog, the company re-confirmed some of the new features that will come as a part of Windows Phone 7.8.The new available colors for the UI theme were mentioned (bringing the total to 20). The additional Exchange security enhancements and ability to resize the Live tiles were also revealed, but are nothing new.
There was nothing mentioned on the rumored update that was said to follow Windows Phone 7.8 on legacy smartphones, though.
