Last year in December 2012, the upgrading of 7.8 seems to collide with some Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK)’s Lumia 800 Smartphones in Netherlands. However no such official/authentic confirmation of the rollout was seen. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) at that time had claimed the handset to arrive in the upcoming initial months of 2013.
Microsoft has finally released its SDK for Windows Phone 7.8, the last ever update to be known for WP 7 Smartphones after the company dropped down an idea of developing WP 8 Smartphones on different kernel OS. Yesterday the company officially announced the launch of SDK through a developer blog.
According to Redmond, SDK is not a compulsion but an optional update for the developers keeping in mind that it includes two latest WP 7.8 emulator images to that of developers already installed SDK. The main difference included by the 7.8 update the more advanced and compatible LIVE TITLE HOMESCREENS are brought by it from that of the older versions. WP7.8 lets users to select between three screen sizes of titles and a more elegant view of apps.
From the SDK posting, it is in knowledge that Microsoft is soon to ship the new handsets running over WP7.8. If the OS proves to be good, then surely Microsoft won’t be putting in more efforts to fix in the bugs. WP7.x owners are already out there waiting for SDK impatiently.
