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.
After 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!!
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)
