When will the Nokia Lumia 800 get the upgrade to Windows Phone 7.8 (WP7.8)?
At the Gadget Show Live in London this weekend Microsoft had a massive stand showing the new Windows 8 software and Surface tablet also including the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X running Windows Phone 8. It has previously be confirmed that the Nokia Lumia 800 will not get WP8 update.
Unfortunately the Nokia Lumia 920 is currently only available on EE, Orange and T Mobile so Lumia owners on other networks will have to wait for the upgrade to Windows Phone 7.8 that brings most of the Windows Phone 8 (WP8) features to the Lumia 800 with Mango 7.5 Operating System.
At the Microsoft stand the date given for the availability of the WP7.8 update to Lumia 800 was January 2013 so we don't have very long to wait. We could of course take the plunge, switch to Orange to get the Lumia 920 or use the HTC 8X instead but that would miss out the fantastic Nokia Drive and Nokia Music applications.
