Nokia Confirms Windows Phone 7.8 Update In A Few Days

NOWP78UPDATE

Nokia in Italy has confirmed to responses on Twitter that the Windows Phone 7.8 update will be rolled out to Windows Phone 7.5 devices in a few days.

It was previously reported last November that Microsoft are keen to roll out the update to as many devices as possible early 2013, so this latest tweet from Nokia could suggest a planned global carrier roll-out from Microsoft in the next day or two?

Windows Phone 7.8 will bring a new improved Start Screen with resizable Live Tiles, an increase in the number of theme and accent colours to twenty, additional new lock screen features, Bing Picture of the Day and new PIN/Password challenges to prevent accidental device wipes.

When the update is fully LIVE – we’ll keep you posted.
