Windows Phone 7.8 update coming this month, confirm two European Nokia divisions

It is almost here, guys! The long anticipated software update for all legacy Windows Phone handsets is about to start rolling out in a matter of weeks, and a couple of Nokia's European divisions have confirmed it. Word came yesterday from Nokia Spain, who reassured us that Windows Phone 7.8 should hit Nokia Lumia smartphones by the end of January. And now, Nokia Italy tweeted that the new software is to be released in a few days.
What's bothering us, however, is that these confirmations came via the divisions' Facebook and Twitter pages respectively. As history has shown, these kinds of announcements, although pretty trustworthy, are not necessarily 100% reliable. Perhaps Nokia is just trying to calm down its impatient users who are annoyed by the fact that Windows Phone 7.8 smartphones are already on the market, yet the update for older handsets has not been released yet. Furthermore, Nokia Spain reiterates that even once the software is ready to launch, it will be up to the carrier to decide when it will be made available to the public.
Still, we'll be keeping our fingers crossed. Should the Windows Phone 7.8 update be released over the forthcoming weeks, rest assured that we'll keep you posted.

Hopefully T-Mobile will push it to the Radar sooner rather than never. My Radar is starting to suck

I had the Radar as my first second gen Windows Phone and I really loved it. In fact the only thing that ruined for me was the 8gb of storage and slightly lower front camera resolution. I got the HTC Titan unlocked off eBay when the prices dropped. Easily the best phone I've owned besides the HTC HD2! And now I even get 4g in a lot of Baltimore. Can't wait for the update. It's only been 7 months but who's counting?lol
