I received an update notification on 13-Apr. As soon as I got home, I connected my phone to my PC and started the update process using Zune. The new firmware is 7.10.8779.8 simply known as Windows Phone 7.8. It’s one of the most awaited update for Windows Phone 7.5 users since Windows Phone 8 is not supported for Windows Phone 7.5 devices. Below are some of the new stuff:
- Resizeable Live Tiles.
- 20 Accent Colors to choose from for your Theme. Nokia users have 21, the additional one being Nokia Blue.
- New icons for Outlook, Games, etc.
- Supports certain new apps for example Ringtone Maker and Bluetooth Share from Nokia Collection.
