Microsoft confirms Windows Phone 7.8 coming early 2013
Of course, we do not know which phones will or will not get the update. We have seen some newer models running the new OS. However, Microsoft did confirm that several popular applications will be making their way to the updated Windows Phone 7 devices. Those apps include, Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Star Wars.
Feature-wise, Microsoft confirmed that in addition to the added theme and accent colors, new lock screen and Bing Picture of the Day, a PIN/password challenge will be available for business users connected to Exchange servers in order to prevent accidental device wipes. Meanwhile, Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President for Windows Phone, says that having used Windows Phone 7.8 on his Lumia 900 made it feel like “a completely new phone.”
