Still waiting (im)patiently for Windows Phone 7.8? It’s hard to get too excited when you know that support is starting to die down for the older version of Windows Phone, but some new features coming to play is certainly better than if Microsoft had totally left you in the dark.
While we still don’t have the official date for the arrival of Windows Phone 7.8, we now might know all the features coming our way. According to a Nokia online customer survey leak, we now get a list of features that are brought by Nokia and brought by Microsoft in the update.
Some of this stuff we already were fully aware of, like the new Start screen with resizable Live tiles. Other features include Bing wallaper lcok screen, and new Nokia-specific features such as Cinemagraph, DRM-free media files via Bluetooth, a ring tone maker and updates Contacts Transfer and Share apps.
Keep in mind that the Nokia features will only be avaliable through Nokia phones. So what do you think of the features mentioned in the leaked survey photo above? More than you were hoping for, less?
With Nokia Lumia 920 and other great Windows Phone 8 handsets starting to surface, do you plan to ditch Windows Phone 7 for WP8 as soon as your current contract or other obligation is up?
Conversely, did the way that Microsoft treated Windows Phone 7 users (by not allowing WP8 upgrades) make you decide to move to another platform as soon as possible?
