Nokia has talked to the folks over at PocketGamer.biz & they have found out that the WP 7.8 update is ready on Nokia’s end but they are waiting on Microsoft at this point.
..the roll out of 7.8 to existing devices remains in Microsoft’s hands, though the firm’s Windows Phone 7 currently shipping to retail – such as the Lumia 800 (below) – have the update pre-loaded.
However this is all the information that Nokia was giving out on the update.
“With Windows Phone 7.8 beginning to ship pre-loaded on Nokia Lumia smartphones, we will naturally be deploying the software to our factories for product rollout. At present we have no more information we can give about wider availability of the update for phones running Windows Phone 7.5.”
With this update already past it’s rumored launch date of last month it is widely believed that it would be coming “early 2013” and this information lends credence to this rumor.
