    Anyone updated yet? Is it even available yet? Is it only available through desktop software or right through the phone?

    thanks

    U.S--> Not available yet... Other countries you can go to a Nokia Care Suit and they would be able to update it for you.. The scheduled release is early 2013 for every WP 7.5 device.

    Same here, not available in my country just yet, but flashed the UK version of it onto my Lumia 610. Pretty much the same as 7.8 on my Lumia 800. Homescreen is awesome, but not much of a difference compared to 7.5 otherwise. :D

    I purchased a Nokia Lumia 610 in Denpasar, Indonesia for around $145. All the phones are unlocked and unbranded. My favourite Dell Venue Pro has been sent away to have the glass replaced (yes, I dropped it).

    The phone had 7.8 on it right out of the box. Connecting to Zune revealed that no additional updates were required. Was logged back onto my exchange account within minutes and back up and running.

    7.8 is cool, but really, there is no big difference. The extras that are good (over the DVP) are the internet sharing utility, which work surprisingly well. The screen is ok. The camera is ok too.

    It is a cheapy standby phone for me, but would recomend it to anyone. Skype and a few other apps are not compatible with it, but really it has the all the stuff that is important.

    One thing I noticed is that I cannot seem to locate the setting that has the camera auto-upload to SkyDrive. If anyone can point me to that it would be much appreciated.

    Cheers,

    I'm on Singtel (Singapore) but I haven't received any updates yet, though their Lumia 800 and 900 on display in their stores are all 7.8 already.
    I'm using a mac, and I don't have a pc. Navifirm and Nokia care Suite only works on PC for some reasons. I only have Windows Phone Connector on Mac. Can anybody help?

    I believe the auto upload feature is disabled on 610s. I looked up the solution at Microsoft Answers when I first picked up the phone in August 2012 and found out the bad news. Also Nokia Ireland says it is disabled to 'maintain good performance'.

    Updated mine to 7.8 a couple of days ago but battery keeps saying it's critical - even after a full charge it drops to about 30% within an hour of unplugging it from either the charger or USB connection.

    Anyone else have this problem??
