First Look at Windows Phone 7.8 on Lumia 900

As we mentioned Windows Phone 7.8 has begun rolling out to all users across the globe; while updating it turns out there was another update that I somehow missed which was a “Nokia software update” and did something to App purchases and email sync times.

DSC01667After downloading the update it took about 15 minutes to install each of them; after which the phone restarted and I was greeted with the new Windows Phone 8 boot screen; which was actually quite disturbing seeing the mismatched logo between the screen and the capacitive button.


New tiles Wohoo!!


Also new is the ability to set the Bing Search wallpaper as background for the day; which although doesn’t allow for as much customization as WP8, is a pretty neat addition. WP_20130130_004

The OS Version barely jumped going from 7.10.87XX to 7.10.88XX; while the Software now reads as “Windows Phone 7.8”

(I’m uploading a video of the changes- it should be up shortly)
