The Windows Phone 7.8 update for Nokia’s first-gen Lumia phones is still on track for an early 2013 roll-our, according to the manufacturer. The refresh should bring a couple of features present on Windows Phone 8, like the improved Home screen, to legacy Windows Phone 7 devices.

With Windows Phone 7.8 beginning to ship pre-loaded on Nokia Lumia smartphones, we will naturally be deploying the software to our factories for product rollout“, said the Finnish phone maker. While no more details were made public, Nokia confirmed that, as far as existing devices are concerned, the actual roll-out of Windows Phone 7.8 “remains in Microsoft’s hands”. “Early 2013” is still the best estimate the company is willing to announce.
