Finally, there is good news for Nokia Lumia 800 users. The Finnish company has released Windows Phone 7.8 update for your Nokia Lumia 800. To update your device just go to Zune Desktop software and check for available updates. If it’s not available in your region then please wait for few days as update can take time to roll out in all regions.
Nokia’s previous gen Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 owners were quite dejected when Microsoft announced that Windows Phone 8 will not be platform compatible with these devices. But with it also came the news that some of the enhancements including the new start screen of Windows Phone 8 will make it to previous gen devices in the form of Windows Phone 7.8 update. And here we are not long after the announcement with the update rolling out to the Lumia 800.
The update is available in 4 steps, first you have to update to 7.10.8773 7.10.8779.8, then proceed with the update to 7.10.8783, which prepares the device for the final update to 7.10. 8858.136. Its quite a number of steps, but the end result will be quite satisfactory as it is probably the best and last major update you will get for your Lumia 800.
