Earlier, Microsoft was mum about the releasing of the WP7.8. It is widely speculated the update would have been arrived by this time.

Microsoft announced Windows Phone 7.8 earlier this year with promises it will carry some of the features of Windows 8 such as new resizable live tile interface along with ten additional color themes. New lock screen feature will also be seen on the phone with the update apart from PIN/password challenge for preventing accidental wiping away of Exchange accounts and new applications like that of Draw Something and Words With Friends.

Let,s hope we get the best of Windows Phone 8 in the Windows Phone 7.8.
