Windows Phone 7.8 update – good and bad

Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 8 software will bring new features, but sadly leaves its older Windows Phone users scratching their heads wondering if they should have ever purchased the phone in the first place — at least I would.

Microsoft sure has its share of moments with its consumers – then again I wonder how much is played into corporate tactics (the famous ‘force upgrading’ tactic that is). Simply put – Windows Phone 7 are not compatible with Windows Phone 8 operating system.

The over-hyped Lumia 900, which launched in April, 2012, will face the somewhat doom for consumers wanting to upgrade to the latest OS — such as the new customizable home screen. There may be some hope to the dilemma as Microsoft will be releasing a Windows Phone 7.8 as early as next week for its older-gen phones.

Windows Phone 7.8 should bring in some of the major features of WP8 to those using WP7 Phones, though Microsoft has yet to clarify its details. WP7.8 has even been speculated as the final big update to WP7 Phones — so consumers may want to rethink their next smartphone purchases if these are the bags of tricks the company wishes to pursue.

While the next advancement of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 will be more compatible with multi-core and screen quality — it should allow more room for future hardware changes in the next-gen phones from the software giant. At least lets hope so.

For now consumers may wish to hang tight and see how things lay out in the next several weeks, as well see what Windows Phone 7.8 has to offer for the time being.

I just want to know who at Microsoft has a huge fetish with tiles? Blah!
