Windows Phone 7.8 Review

It’s fair to say that existing Lumia owners, like myself, were a little more than disappointed when we learned that our Windows Phone 7.5 based devices will not be upgraded to the new and exciting Windows Phone 8 OS from Microsoft. I initially thought that this was all part of a marketing ploy to get us to buy newer devices. That was not the case though. Microsoft went on to explain that the hardware in our current devices was simply not powerful enough to run WP8, and that the new OS required at least a dual-core processor to run lag-free. However, Microsoft and Nokia did not just abandon us, they promised us an update, and update that would bring down some prominent WP8 features to existing devices. They called this update Windows Phone 7.8. In this review, we’ll only be covering the new updates and features that Microsoft and Nokia packed into WP7.8 for the Nokia Lumia 900.
