Nokia starts pushing Windows Phone 7.8 update to Lumias
After months of waiting, the Windows Phone 7.8 update for older and more affordable Nokia devices is finally starting to roll-out today. The update has already been shipping in most recent Lumia 510 phones, but it is now being pushed en masse to other handsets.

The Windows Phone 7.8 update is the last big update for the first generation of Lumia devices, as devices running on 7.5 will not get updated to Windows Phone 8. The 7.8 update brings some of the visual flare of WP8 like the new, smaller tile size that makes your home page much more customizable. New lock screen options and additional theme colors are also added.

And here are the devices that should soon get an update notification:

  • Nokia Lumia 510
  • Lumia 610 
  • Lumia 710 
  • Lumia 800 
  • Lumia 900

The update will not arrive over-the-air and you’d need to plug in your devices and fire up Zune for PC or the Windows Phone app for Mac to update.
