Vodafone says rollout of Windows Phone 7.8 has been stopped
just 16% of potential Windows Phone 7.8 users receiving the update, it looks like it will be quite some time before Microsoft stops pushing out the update once it resumes the task.
Windows Phone 7.8 brings some of the capabilities of Windows Phone 8 to older handsets such as resizeable Live Tiles, twenty different colored themes and the Bing Lock screen wallpaper of the day, to name a few. The idea of the build is to keep those with older hardware as up to date as possible so that they won't automatically run off to Android or iOS once their two year tour of duty with their carrier expires.
