Nokia recently announced its  Windows Phone 7.8 update for a number of Nokia Lumia smartphones. The phones which operate on Windows Phone 7.8 are the Lumia 800, Lumia 900, Lumia 510, Lumia 610 and the Lumia 710.

 

The main changes you will notice after updating begin with the addition of customisable Live Tiles sizes for the Start Screen and there are more colours to pick from too, there is a new optional Bing image to lock your screen, camera extras for better imaging enhancements, Bluetooth sharing and more apps including Nokia City Lens, Play To and Contact Share.

 

 Nokia say that update notifications will start this month ( if they havn’t aleady ) and as usual are operator dependent as to when you can upgrade. To make sure you get the update as soon as your operator makes it available go to Settings > Phone Update > “Notify me when new updates are found”.
