Windows Phone 7.8 said to be arriving on Wednesday
new start screen that the update brings is the most anticipated feature on the new OS build with the new live tiles offering three sizing options. Other changes include new accent colors, the Bing lock screen wallpaper, twenty new themes, IE security updates and the ability to produce a ringtone using MP3 files. Those with Nokia phones will be able to produce draft versions of SMS messages and will have the ability to keep Wi-Fi running even when the phone is suspended.
The period between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve is usually festive and here is one extra thing for some Windows Phone users to feel good about.

WP7.8 will remain using IE9 mobile. It will not get IE10 mobile.

Yeah, I'd still be waiting for the Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrade if ONLY I had kept that Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone back in 2009. Nevertheless, progress at Microsoft is best measured and compared to the formation of the Milky Way.

I'd say WP is a step Backwards from Windows Mobile...

Nice to see 7.5 users getting some love even though they are getting the full features running on Windows phone 8.

Nokia phones will be able to create SMS drafts? I can't even do that on my 920...im assuming this is bad info or something. Also, listing new colors and then 20 new themes in the same sentence is misleading. The theme selection is exactly the same, light or dark. There are twenty colors but some are old.

Not in the US. The only country that matters.
