Windows Phone 7.8 needs IE10, Screenshots, compatible apps of Windows Phone 8, Office 2013, OTA updates
I think that Windows Phone 7.8 need to be the most similar as possible to WP8. It needs the IE10, screenshots, all the compatible apps that will be available on Windows Phone 8. The download of apps higher than 20MB by the 3G. And we from Brazil also want the applications available on the Windows Phone Store (Marketplace) from U.S. here in Brazil! This would be really awesome!
We are truly floored by the number of feature suggestions that we have received and the excitement about future Windows Phone releases. Some of you have been wondering, “Will Windows Phone 7.8 have the same features as in Windows Phone 8?” The answer, unfortunately, is no. Windows Phone 8 is a generation shift in technology, which means that it will not run on existing hardware. BUT we care deeply about our existing customers and want to keep their phones fresh, so we’re providing the new Start screen in the upcoming 7.8 update. We’ll have more to share on the Windows Phone 7.8 update in the coming weeks.
