    I know this is late, but these are features WP7.8 won't have. I posted this in the suggestion box.

    IE10 would be good, but I think we need native screenshot support.

    Who knows??? I happened to ask my carrier here in NZ about it today but they had no news. What sort of battery life are you getting? I have an 800 too and get just over a day with light to moderate use and battery saver turned on

    I think there is a round of rumours saying it could come out in or around end of January, but we all know what the rumour mill is like. It hopefully shouldn't be too long now. With regards to battery life, how long is it lasting you? Have you checked your background tasks in settings? Maybe something there draining it. Also, are all OS/firmware updates installed?

    All over the internet is news from Nokia Italy & Spain that wp7.8 is coming in the next few days. See pocketnow, phone arena and others. So fingers crossed, you should have 7.8 very very soon

    Nokia UK also tweeted that 7.8 is coming soon with the following link: Nokia Lumia 800 and Windows Phone 7.8: What you can expect | NokNok.tv

    I don't know how to link the actual tweet though. Really do hope it's coming soon

    Do you still face the problem of WIFI getting disconnected when phone goes to sleep? . I recently updated to 7.8 and i figured they will be fixing it in this update. But no avail. The problem persists. Would be great to get some inputs from a fellow 7.8 user.

    I'd be happy if it comes by the end of the month. I'm really ready for the new start screen. If it doesn't until late March, the end of Q1, I will be very disappointed.

    hey, just keep your data connection OFF in "mobile network" menu. This will help you, try it.
