I can't wait to see it in action on the lumia 800, I'm thinking of buying it for Christmas. Too bad that people don't realize that there is still future for their phone, and that it's not left out like the other manufactures do and just becoming a feature phone for calls.
for all those who say that 7.5 should have been updated to win 8 the only difference between windows 7.8 and windows 8 is the hardware support for hardwares like NFC,SD card , core processors,etc and other all software supports will be the same as windows 8 in windows 7.8. so only if 7.8 gets support for sd card there should be almost no problem as both at the price at which 7.8 devices come there's almost no scope such hardware as 7.8 and 8 are virtually the same.
7.8 update is getting bluetooth sharing with any other phone which is great but really disappointed with the fact that it not getting mass storage and freedom from zune. if it gets it i bet nokia 510 and 610 would just smoke out the droids at their price range as they are very low hardware as compared to lumia 610 and 510.
its a lot better than having that ugly black border.. 7.8 is way better

Anonymous, 01 Dec 2012if it will have mass storage mode without zune and bluetooth file transfer ,any file, it will ... moreTotally agree man .... that is the main feature i want in 7.8 else its waste update. i dont really care about tile size or extra colors of any other feature. For me mass file transfer mode is the main thing and next is multi select in pictures section.
teja dakoo, 01 Dec 2012nokia n9 dont have curved glass like lumia 800...I read the gsmarena review of Nokia N9 : Once in a Lifetime. It says that it has a curved gorilla glass. Get it check.
Arrow is missing even at the bottom of start screen..... Really wonder if its a genuine 7.8
Im a android user ... and i try those windows phone i think those are perfect for some who need a simple smartphone easy to use + have most the same as a iphone or some android
Perfect for who try a Smartphone for the first time
Why is it that most of the video of Windows Phones are merely swiping here and there, and demonstrate nothing else? Does WP not making use of sensors like GS3 or Android? What's the point of resizing these squares when one cannot have good notification alerts like Android??
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2012that means that you were lying. N9 does have a curved screen.my god man m using n9 from past 4 months and today i checked it do have curved glass like l 800.... But it doesnt feel because like lumia 800 it doesnt have live tiles.....on lumia 800 it feels like those tiles are glued to the screen....sorry my fault...
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2012that means that you were lying. N9 does have a curved screen.You can check it on web also.....i own n9...... Only lumia 800 till date have curved glass.....and m not lying.....
IMO Wp os is fast and clean. But the downside is it waste screen estate and lack of productive features.
They should have let the old wp7 phones upgrade to 8.. they are barely 2 years old.

Even if any device has 40 cores it would still be ARM right . Desktop os will never run on ARM . Ur dream will never come true friend . Even if u give 100 fangs to a cat it would still be a cat it will never become tiger . So dont be delusional . We still dont know what octacore will add to present platforms . Poor battery life i guess .

M$ is just delaying it, people should get Android with
windows phone 8 launcher if they like tiles
Android is getting 8 core CPUs next year and with 2GB standard Android 5.1 will be like a desktop in you pocket.
Smoked by Android
Update for an out of market OS, very old windowsphone. Really a waste of time. Hope Nokia change to android or it is a death company in few months.
