The much anticipated Windows Phone 7.8 update has begun to rollout to Lumia handsets, says Nokia. So far the update has been confirmed for the Lumia 510, 610, 710, 800 and 900, with Windows Phone 7.8 arriving over the coming weeks on all the handsets.
"The Windows Phone 7.8 rollout started last night in the UK, so people started getting notifications from operators; it's a phased rollout throughout February, but should be finished by the end of the month", said Nokia in an Interview. Unfortunately, updating your Lumia is not as simple as it sounds. Users must connect the phone to a PC and use the Zune desktop software to push the update to the phone.
Nokia's Windows Phone 8 devices will also see an update to Windows Phone 8 Portico. The Windows Phone 8 update offers up a number of enhancements such as improvements to the messaging system, the ability to send text replies when you can't take an incoming call, tweaks to the IE browser, improved Wi-Fi connectivity and plenty of others. Unlike the Windows Phone 7.8 update, Lumia 820 and 920 owners get the luxury of an Over-the-Air update.
