Nokia: Windows Phone 7.8 Coming Soon (Early 2013)

January 4, 2013 1 Comment

Even with us glancing at videos of the Lumia 900 running Windows Phone 7.8 and it being available on Navifirm, we knew we would have to wait till early this year to get our hands on it. Since at first we all thought it would be end of 2012 however, a little reassurance goes a long way.

Nokia has stated the following to Pocketbiz:

“With Windows Phone 7.8 beginning to ship pre-loaded on Nokia Lumia smartphones, we will naturally be deploying the software to our factories for product rollout,” Nokia said in a statement.

“At present we have no more information we can give about wider availability of the update for phones running Windows Phone 7.5.”

They also stated that they believe the Windows Phone 7.8 update is ”imminent” and that

“Microsoft announced that it is working closely with hardware and carrier partners to get it tested, approved, and rolled out to as many devices as possible in early 2013,”

Hopefully Microsoft can give us a firm date as to when it should be arriving.
