Windows Phone 7.8 rolling out to overseas Nokia Lumia 800 models now
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.

Hoped for WP8, but atleast NOKIA is not among the companies who leave out the old phones.

It is mobile from October 26th 2011, this is not an old mobile. So basically this mobile had 1 year support, wow. And it only got WP 7.8 which is light years from jelly bean.

and how many android devices (percentage please) are running even jellybean 4.1? please do not compare wp support with android support...

why? because most Android devices atleast see 2 major upgrades as opposed to the 800s 1? (if you can call a new launcer a firmware update)?
please, MS dropped the ball on the WP7 phones, how do you know they won't do the same to the current WP8?

Anybody with some hope on Samsung Omnia W update to 7.8 ?
24. simad3 (Posts: 4; Member since: 17 Dec 2012)
I hope so. But doubt it. I think only Nokia will put in the effort to release the update. All the other companies are busy with Android.
