In mid-November last year we heard that Microsoft will commence the Windows Phone 7.8 roll-out for first and second generation handsets by the end of the year. For reasons unknown this schedule was pushed back and the latest date appears to be January 31st.
Windows Phone Colombia has informed users that the roll out will begin from January 31st. Telstra has also revealed that the Nokia Lumia 800 will be receiving the update from the last day of January. O2 also revealed that the update will arrive by the end of January. With the sheer amount of evidence on hand it is now easy to say that Windows Phone 7.8 will begin to roll out in ten days time.
The Windows Phone 7.8 update arrives in the hope to keep existing Windows Phone 7.x users happy enough with their devices and includes resizable Live Tiles, the Bing daily image lock screen wallpaper and various other improvements.
KitGuru says: To existing Windows Phone 7.x users, are you pleased with the improvements that Microsoft will offer with Windows Phone 7.8?
