A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft paused the Windows Phone 7.8 update rollout due to a number of software glitches, the most serious of them being the misbehaving live tiles. Simply put, the tiles could not update properly, which was not only annoying, but also costing consumers precious megabytes.
At that time, only about 16% of the people who were supposed to get the new software had it already running on their devices.
So in case you still have a smartphone running Windows Phone 7.5, get that microUSB cable out and hook it up to a computer running Zune. Feel free to let us know down in the comments when the Windows Phone 7.8 software lands on your smartphone as well.
