According to a Windows Phone blog based in the Netherlands, a Nokia Lumia 800
they own has received the long awaited Windows Phone 7.8 update
. It is unclear whether this is rolling out to carrier-branded models at the same time, although we would tend to doubt it. The update came from Zune desktop software and was broken down into four parts starting with a Nokia update to Windows Phone, 7.10.8773, which continued with software version 7.10.8779.8, then 7.10.8783, and lastly to 7.10.8858.136. The "8858" update for the Nokia Lumia 900 was spotted in Nokia's servers the other day
The update can be noticed immediately
with a Windows Phone 8 style splash screen and resizable Live Tiles. Other changes expected include a Bing lock screen image of the day, new wallpapers and twenty new themes with different colored accents.
If you own the device, or any of the other Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 7.5 models, you might want to check to see if the update is waiting for you by connecting to Zune. Let us know if it has arrived by leaving a comment in the box below.
