Nokia rolling out Windows Phone 7.8 update for Lumia devices

Nokia has started rolling out the Windows Phone 7.8 devices for Lumia Smartphone running on Windows Phone 7.5 OS. All the first-gen Nokia Lumia devices such as Lumia 510, 610, 710, 800 and 900 are eligible for the update. The update is rolling out in staggered manner and will be available in the coming weeks.

Windows Phone 7.8 has the same home screen as Windows Phone 8, and allows users to choose from three different tile sizes and also give the option to set a Bing background picture as your lock screen image. 

Other features in the update include Internet Sharing, Bluetooth Sharing, imaging enhancements like Camera Extras, and apps such as Contact share, Play To and Nokia City Lens. Language support has also been expanded.

While 7.8 is not a perfect solution for current owners of Windows Phone 7 devices, it certainly helps to bridge the gap between Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 7 since Windows Phone 7 devices will not be updated to Windows Phone 8.
