    Any one have an idea as to when we will be able to get the 7.8 update for WP 7 devices?
    I had a WP 8 home screen simulator app on my HTC Radar that made the phone look much better.
    I recently got an 8X and gotta admit what I've read the 7.8 update will add to WP 7's is pretty sweet!

    Wait, if you have an 8X, why do you need 7.8? You already have WP8.
    The official timeframe is Q1 2013, so any time before April.

    the all metal chassis of the Radar is better for situations where I could do some significant body damage to my phone i.e. Night out at a bar or outdoor activities in rough terrain.
    The 8X is too nice to cover up, but the drawback is that I run the risk of worse damage.

    Phones are shipping with 7.8 now, so it's only a few weeks away, if not sooner.
