Microsoft might have released Windows Phone 8, but that doesn't mean the end of support for those with a Windows Phone 7 smartphone. Infact, Windows Phone 7.8 is rumoured to be landing tomorrow on supported smartphones !
The update to Windows Phone 7.8 will bring a number of new features including introducing the new Windows Phone 8 interface. That'll include new "Live-Tiles" sizes which enables even more customisation of the home-screen.
Details on the update are pretty scarse , but it's also rumoured to include new lock-screen features which enable you to display live application updates. For example, you'd be able to view social networking updates directly on your lock-screen.
Other new features rumoured to come as part of the update include Bluetooth file-sharing support, an MP3 editor and security updates for the web-browser. It goes without saying that it'll also include a number of bug fixes and overall speed improvements.
In related news Microsoft are also thought to be working on an updated to Windows Phone 8 which should roll-out early next year. When we hear more about the update you'll be the first to know.
