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

0. phoneArena 16 Dec 2012, 10:49 posted on

It looks like the Nokia Lumia 800 is starting to receive the long awaited Windows Phone 7.8 update although we are not sure if this includes carrier-branded models of the phone; the update arrived via Zune desktop software and was sent in four individual updates that started with a Nokia Update for Windows Phone...

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.

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?

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.
