Windows Phone 7.8 Now Rolling Out for AT&T Nokia Lumia 900


Remember when Windows Phone was in its infancy and we were optimistic that Microsoft might be able to mitigate the sort of problems Android faced with OEMs and carriers dragging their feet when it came to software updates? We’ve had a healthy dose of reality since then, and while the WP landscape may not be quite so fragmented as Android’s, it’s far from a well-oiled, finely tuned machine. To that effect, many AT&T Lumia 900 users are only just today getting their Windows Phone 7.8 updates.

This update contains the latest 7.10.8862.144 system software we saw arrive in March, correcting some issues from earlier WP7.8 builds. AT&T had started distribution of 7.8 for the 900 prior to the discovery of those bugs, but halted it a while back in anticipation of 8862.

Sure, many of you probably forced the update months ago, but if you hadn’t, or had only done so for an earlier build of 7.8, you’re going to want to check today’s release out.
