Nokia: WP7.8 Update is for Pre-Production Devices – Real Update Coming Early 2013December 17, 2012 1 Comment
Sad sad sad Windows Phone 7.8 news coming from Nokia.
Recently, we saw that non carrier locked Lumia 800′s were getting the Windows Phone 7.8 update. We were poised to be getting the update before the year ended but alas it looks like that isn’t happening.
Nokia told tweakers.net that the update going out now is only rolling out to pre-production devices. These handsets can be found in the hands of developers, journalists and bloggers alike. Those who purchased devices after they officially launched will have to wait till early next year to get Windows Phone 7.8.
If you can’t wait that long, you can always try to flash it onto your handset.
