As expected the rumors that suggested Windows Phone 7.8 would arrive today were not true. So what’s next? Microsoft has decided to take a little of the mystery away by posting an update on the Windows Blog. In that update they have announced that 7.8 will arrive in “early 2013.”
Microsoft is playing a dangerous game with 7.8. They want to hold off on releasing it so there is incentive for people to buy WP8 devices, but in doing that they are alienating WP7 users. Like we mentioned way back at the announcement of 7.8, the WP7 user base might be small enough that Microsoft doesn’t care. For the sake of early adopters we hope that isn’t true.
Is 2013 too late?
