Nokia Lumia 800 seen running Windows Phone 7.8
In non-Apple, non-iPhone 5 related news, the Nokia Lumia 800 has been seen running the Windows Phone 7.8 update, presumably an early version of it, ahead of its public release. Photos and a demo video have been spotted on a Polish website devoted to Microsoft's mobile platform, with at least one forum member reassuring readers that what's shown is not a forgery. What is being demonstrated is the new home screen with all available live tile sizes and the various theme colors that will be available with the new software.

Unfortunately, that's all the video reveals, but then again, not much more might be working if this is just an early version of the Windows Phone 7.8 update. Besides, it could all be just an elaborate fake, although it looks good enough to convince us it is genuine.

What is your call on this one, guys? Real or fake? Oh well, we'll probably know with certainty once the Windows Phone 7.8 update starts rolling out, which is expected to happen soon after Windows Phone 8 is out.

Interesting.. I saw a "Share" under the usual "pin to start, Rate and review, uninstall" Context menu.

Can't wait to get the update, but I'm buying Lumia 920 anyway..

Well apparently you don't hate "prison os" if you bought a 64gb iPhone 4S. Windows sales are probably declining since there haven't been any new WP releases for a while. Who knows? Maybe WP8 will revive Microsoft software mobile efforts. Just stop being so damn negative all the time. And it's ridiculous because I always see it from Android users, who I wild think would support choice and more options.

woah.. 4 thumbs down. Android fans are jealous?
The fact that Nokia is giving support and Android OEMs ditching you after buying the device?

I don't get why Nokia went after Android with their dumb picture of eating Jelly Beans for breakfast. Those two innovators should join and eat Apples for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
