AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 getting Windows Phone 7.8 update on January 30th

Before the launch of the Nokia Lumia 920, AT&T's high end Windows Phone device was the Nokia Lumia 900. The smartphone was launched in April with a massive marketing campaign by both AT&T and Nokia. Now it looks like owners of the Windows Phone 7.5 smartphone will finally be able to get the promised update to Windows Phone 7.8 next week.

WPCentral.com reports it received an internal AT&T email claiming that the Windows Phone 7.8 update for the Lumia 900 will go live on Wednesday, January 30th. If the story is accurate, that would mean the update is launching one day earlier than previously rumored.

The article also has the full change log of what Lumia 900 user can expect to gain from the new software update. There's nothing really new in the list that hasn't been revealed before. Windows Phone 7.8 will include features such as resizable Live Tiles, a new Bing-powered lock screen, new theme colors, an improved Windows Phone Store experience and even more improvements and fixes.

We should see more of the older Windows Phone 7.5 devices get the 7.8 upgrade in late January or early February from their various wireless carriers.

They should be releasing it for the HTC Titan II that day too then! Both phones were top-end models released on the same day. I took theTitan II and gave my girl a white Lumia 900. I'll be ****ed if her chick phone gets it before mine haha!

If you don't want to wait, Nokia Care Suite is your friend. Installed it yesterday and it works like a charm.

Same, got impatient, went for 7.8, homebrew market, unlock, tweaks and all that via a custom ROM. Pretty satisfied for a point release.
