At the end of June, Microsoft announced to its current Windows Phone 7 user base that it hadn’t forgot them. That an update was in the pipelines to allow them to experience the best of Windows Phone 8 that their hardware would allow them to have. After that announcement, Microsoft seemingly forgot all about that statement. Even Paul Thurrott has been noticeably critical of Microsoft’s silence on the WP7.8 update. However, a new rumor circulating claims that the new update might be available this Wednesday, November 28th.
No source is named so it’s really up in the sky as to whether this turns out to be true or not. Many people have speculated that Microsoft has held off on giving loyal customers the Windows Phone 7.8 update in the hopes that they’ll upgrade to the superior Windows Phone 8. It’s a valid concern, especially when Microsoft has been so silent about the issue. Still, we’ll keep our eyes on the usual channels and let you know what pans out.
