There have been a ton of compelling rumors over the past few weeks concerning just when Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.8 update would finally become available, ranging from broader windows to some very specific dates. The most recent to come our way had us looking forward to January 31, but now a new leak makes it seem that the updates will start going out one day earlier, on January 30.

WPCentral managed to get its hands on an internal AT&T email that lays the whole thing out for the Lumia 900. The approximately hundred-megabyte update will be available to subscribers next Wednesday, and after they tether their handsets to their PCs and fire-up Zune, the transition to WP7.8 can begin.

Beyond the obvious home screen Live Tile changes, the update will bring enhancements to phone stability, an tweaked Marketplace, new custom color theme options, and lock screen improvements.

While this is great news to finally get, we’re still left with a lot of questions about updates for users with other Windows Phone 7.5 devices, as well as those on other carriers.
