Video shows Windows Phone 7.8 on Nokia Lumia 900
While it's true that 37 seconds isn't time enough to view all of the new features coming with Windows Phone 7.8, a video teaser of the updated OS doing its thing on a Nokia Lumia 900 does show the re-sizable live tiles in action. That is one of the most anticipated changes coming with the update and copies the functionality available on the new Windows Phone 8 handsets. The video also shows a new Xbox icon.

Just the other day, Microsoft confirmed that Windows Phone 7.8 would be released sometime early next year. While a complete list of Windows powered devices receiving the update has not been released, you have to like Microsoft's statement that the update will be sent out to "as many devices as possible." Hopefully, that includes yours.

Why is everyone freaking out over 37 seconds of nothing? I've flashed my Dad's Titan and Mozart with 7.8 over a week ago;

All you need is to HSPL from a supported SPL and Dynamics v2.0 is the best 7.8 rom, both the Mozart and Titan run it fine;

Don't you need a developer unlocked device to be able to flash ROM's on Windows Phone devices?

The update is surely welcome for my Lumia 900, but is it just me or does this tile resizing feature seem extremely standard and like a days work at Microsoft? We're still being limited to a set amount of colors and only 3 sizes, I'm underwhelemed.

There may be other updates for that, plus add-on packs

MS can take their time, in my opinion. The longer the wait, the better the update. My Focus S is ready for a nice refresh, but I am willing to trade a few more months for a few more extras.
