Windows Phone 7.8 Update News Via Microsoft Windows Phone Site

25 Jun

Microsoft has created a “Windows Phone 7.5 news” page, one can only assume to counter the growing wishful speculation of what Windows Phone 7.8 will HOPEFULLY have, with a listing of features that will ACTUALLY be coming to Windows Phone 7.8, along with a brief video showing the new start screen. No date for the update is listed.

Poll results – Majority of Windows Phone users happy with proposed 7.8 update via WPCentral

Certainly we can say the results are mixed but a majority of you (54%) are okay with Microsoft choosing this path for current Windows Phone users. The clear "no" category had 19.61%  thinking Microsoft could and should do more while another 20% were on the fence, perhaps waiting to see how it actually looks and feel. A tiny percentage (6%) claimed they are finished with Microsoft and are leaving the platform.
