Post Windows Phone 7.8 update hinted at in latest Nokia leakNovember 17, 2012 2 Comments
Yep, that’s right folks. Looks like the sad ending that was expected will not come after all. It appears Windows Phone 7.x may live on in the after life after all. A new leaked slide for a Nokia presentation shows what appears to be Nokia’s and Microsoft’s plans to continue to update their devices, even with the new Windows Phone 8 platform as their dominate OS. The German site WParea.de some how got their lucky little mitts on more of the documentations from their anonymous source. Below is just one of the 25 slides they were sent:
The official Windows Phone Russia twitter handle also backs these claims up saying that in fact there will be 18 months of support for Windows Phone 7.8 phones in the future.
Looks to be indeed be a sign that Nokia has never, and will never forget their customers. Who knows what these future updates may bring, but at the least we can will be able to yell out proudly ”I own a 3 year old Nokia Lumia and still receive official updates.” Something an android user will never be able to even whisper…MBGW
