Windows Phone 7.8 to be released late?

Though Windows Phone 8 is official,  There was no word from the Microsoft about the Windows Phone 7.8, the anticipated update with new UI for previous Windows Phone smartphones. The company didn’t even mention about the WP7.8 at the press event yesterday When Windows Phone 8 was launched.

Anyway, new rumors suggest that release of the Windows Phone 7.8 update will take a few weeks after the Windows Phone 8 devices hit the market. There will be cheap Windows Phone 7.8 devices as well, we could expect the update after the first wave of the Windows Phone 7.8 devices like Nokia Lumia 510 announced recently. We assume that previous Windows Phone users would have to wait at least a month.

The Windows Phone 7.8 update is highly expected by existing users, all we know about the Windows Phone 7.8 is that  it has the same Windows Phone 8 UI that can be resized , and more details are yet to be revealed by the company. Anyway, according to previous reports, carriers won’t be lagging the update release as Microsoft will be delivering it directly to users as OTA or via Zune.
