Windows Phone 7.8 said to be arriving on Wednesday
The video we showed you Saturday of a Windows Phone 7.8 powered Nokia Lumia 510 in China was just the beginning. Now comes speculation that the Windows Phone 7.8 update will be launched on Wednesday, November 28th. This is not a firm date, obviously, but with Windows Phone 8 already released, those hung up at Windows Phone 7.5 have been hoping for the download to come ASAP.
Probably the 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.
