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.
Meet the new Start
With more great apps and a fabulous new Start screen on the way, Windows Phone 7.5 just keeps getting better.
A bigger, more flexible Start screen
Dress it up in new colors and choose from three sizes of Live Tiles, easily resized and rearranged with a tap.
100,000 apps and counting
Audible just joined the party. PayPal, Draw Something, Words with Friends, and plenty more are on the way.
More love for Lumias
Nokia is providing Lumia owners awesome new features including camera enhancements and a new way to share contacts and track data usage.
Hands on with the new Windows Phone 7.8 Start Screen.
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.
