WP8 for current devices available for ‘enthusiasts’ (BTW this is a WP8 Lumia already right?)

For current Lumia owners, if you’re an enthusiast, you won’t have to wait for WP7.8 which brings in the new homescreen and some other WP8 features.

You can apparently get WP8 unofficially.

PhoneScoop says:

Microsoft today said that it plans to make Windows Phone 8 available to users who want to install it on their Windows Phone devices, even if their carrier and/or device manufacturer won’t officially support the update

So, if you want it, it’s there. I know we have many daring Nokia fans who just love flashing their devices with unofficial firmware or even a totally different OS. There might be some out there that would be willing to go down this route.

How this update will be distributed is not yet confirmed.



BTW, I know I mentioned it already in the previous posts but check out that thing that clearly looks like a Lumia with WP8.

I hope that’s it. No additional seams or space-wasting-frames (as funky as they are). I think someone also mentioned on the Engadget that it was confirmed to be a Nokia proto live on stage.
