    Windows Phone 7.8 is a certainty; it will land early 2013, according to Microsoft, for those who have certain legacy Windows Phone 7 devices, to bridge the gap between version-seven-phones and version-eight-devices. A recent Nokia survey shed some light on what both Microsoft and the manufacturer will include but we're now seeing some ROMs on Navifirm. Windows Phone 7.8 (with builds 8858.12560) has popped up on online and it looks like the targeted phones are the Lumia 800 and Lumia 510 (which was the first phone caught on camera running 7.8). According to reports the new version of the ...

    Even with Windows Phone 8 about to hit the scene, Nokia's far from done with WP7, and we've heard about the company's work on an all-new handset along those lines, the Lumia 510.

It looks like the phone's still running Tango in this image, but that should quickly be remedied once 7.8 becomes available. The handset seen here closely matches what we saw in those renders, basically ...
