Windows Phone 7.8 to be launched in the next few days

Over the past few weeks, there has been a lot of talk about the launch of Windows Phone 7.8 on legacy devices. If a report by Pocket-Lint is anything to go by, these legacy handsets could be updated to Windows Phone 7.8 before Christmas.In the past, Microsoft had stated that Windows Phone 7.8 would be released only after Windows Phone 8 handsets were launched. With the launch event over, it was expected that devices running on Windows Phone 7.5 would be updated.The report states, “However, information coming out of a Nokia Asia-Pacific developer event in Singapore suggests that attendees were told the Windows Phone 7.8 RTMd (release to manufacturing) this week, meaning the updated software is ready to roll, with a timescale of "days to weeks" expected. The information is attributed to "head of Nokia Asia Pacific Developer" so it's not clear exactly who passed on the information and we remain slightly sceptical.”
