    thats what i thought too but then i remembered when ever i used to check for updates before it said my phone is already up to date and said it had 7.10.8773.98 and 7.5 thats why i thought the update was 7.8 becuase i already had 7.5 , thats why im confused,
    that why is it saying the same thing now after the update?

    Didn't they say the 7.8 update will be coming out after wp8 devices are released? I would say we are months away from that

    7.5 is anything from 7.10.7720.xxx and up. 8773 is the latest "Tango" update and probably the last build before the official 7.8 build closer to release of WP8.

    Firmware is specific to the phone hardware and tends to address hardware issues and such. Check Nokia's site for information on the 710, might be something there. I haven't tried to look.
