First and foremost, we’re noting BT file transfers more so for the whingers that keep complaining that it’s not there and for those who are genuinely interested in it. Not ground breaking of course, but it’s there. It was much rumoured  (as something Nokia would bring to the table) but since there was no confirmation, many revelled in the lack of information that suggested it wasn’t there.

Nokia Conversations confirms the following for WP7.8 which will appear in current Lumia devices in phases.

  • A new Start screen look and feel, familiar from Windows Phone 8, giving you a whole new look the moment you unlock your phone
  • Ringtone maker app to selected markets to create a personal ringtone
  • Contact share app updated to support sharing over Bluetooth in addition to SMS and email
  • Bluetooth file transfer to send media files via Bluetooth from your Lumia device to any other phone

If there are people still playing it, you might be happy to know Draw Something is coming as planned too.

Coming up, there is Zynga’s smash hit games Draw Something and Words with Friends, new apps from Bloomberg, WhatsApp, Groupon and a whole lot more.

Additional lenses app that we saw at Nokia World such as the cool ‘Cinemagraph’ will also be available for current Lumias.

We will also bring Cinemagraph and updates to Smart Group Shot to the existing Lumia devices with some additional surprises to make photo shooting and sharing as easy as possible.

This is still not the full WP7.8 feature list.

Cheers Muerte and Viipottaja
