Windows Phone 7.8 official rollout to start on January 31

Windows Phone logoWe already lost count of all the rumors, confirmations and denials of the Windows Phone 7.8 update. The update itself got so overhyped that we are sure some users will be left disappointed, when it arrives.

Anyway, according to Windows phone Colombia official Facebook page, the Windows Phone 7.8 rollout will begin on January 31.

The date coincides with Microsoft's promised Q1 launch, as well as the fact that there are already updated Lumia smartphones with it, ones that are sold updated and even Samsung fans recently learned that the Omnia updates are complete.

We already got our hands on the Lumia 510 officially running on Windows Phone 7.8 and we've extracted the new features we found so far for you.

  • Resizable Live Tiles
  • Bluetooth File transfer
  • Bing Picture for Lockscreen wallpaper
  • New theme colors
  • You can set Google as default search provider in Internet Explorer
  • New boot screen
  • Updated system and Nokia exclusive apps
  • Ringtone maker (also available in the Marketplace)
