    A Microsoft rep told me that 7.8 is going to be released late November. 😃

    If true, I'm sure just Lumia 900 owners.

    I just wish someone would just say something official about a release date other than "soon".

    Seriously, I read an article saying so far 4 million wp8 devices have been sold. So enough with the greed. Some of us CAN'T get a new phone for quite some time. Supposedly 7.8 has been done, even nokia's version with it's extras since early October. I'm not saying push the update today, but at least throw is a bone with a better ETA then Brazilian tweets or people on forums claiming this or that.(not a negative on forum goers, just saying can't really trust just anybody outside official info by those in the know)

    I would **** my pants if it came out tomorrow. But the chances of that are slim, my partner got herself a 920! I am left in the dust with my windows 7 device; I am so damn jealous of her ability to reside the tiles. Regardless I do hope it comes soon. It will be a major face lift for the OS. ...I am also hoping that Bill Gates comes here and reads this and says to himself: "...hehe that guy is going to **** his pants if we release it! tehehe...." ---a phone call later to Steve Balmer from Gates (on his windows 9 phone (that we will see next year)) ".. release 7.8!! a guy said he will **** his pants if you do!!" ..... Its 132AM!

    I am also anticipating the release of WP7.8 quite a lot. Although perhaps it won't bring much, the rumors are still quite satisfying, if they result to be correct.

    An AT&T rep told me yesterday to keep checking Zune. She said that some people are already getting the 7.8 update, though there's no official release date as of yet. So I don't know if it's just testing, like the ICS update for SGS2 users or what.

    Really? I'm sure we would have seen some news on it if it was actually being delivered.

    It would be nice to get it before the year end, however the latest rumors I heard were early 2013. Even if MS and Nokia finished and gave it to AT&T (and the other carriers) by December, the time it takes the carriers to push an update is simply ridiculous. Hopefully, the "zune hack" method will still work and will force the update. That's how I got 7.5 on my Arrive. =)

    I think since the release of WP8 I think all update comes from Microsoft. Well I know that they were trying to make that the new norm for device but I am not sure if that is how still are setup now. I really hope it is.

    They said 7.8 will bypass carriers. I'm sure they're banking on people getting some for Xmas, so I don't see 7.8 hitting before Xmas.

    The new leaked info seems to support days to a couple of weeks. We shall see.

    Maybe someday soon. I haven't even received tango from at&t on my titan, so im not too confident in them thus far. I've decided simply to have patience. I like my phone running 7.5 just fine, and im not planning on going for an 8 until I see the next wave of devices and/or an update or two happen. Patience will pay off in the end, i am sure!!

    I've read that if you have missed an update, your phone will go through the updates it doesn't have yet first, then the current update will install. I think the word for this is "cumulative"??

    Got an email from Stephen Elop @ Nokia and it reads:

    WP 7.8 is expected to be available early in the New Year on a broad basis, but sometimes individual operators take longer in testing, etc.

    So NOT before Christmas :(
