Video : Whats new in Windows Phone 7.8 and How to upgrade

Finally!! After I heard the updates were getting rolled out, I plugged in my Lumia 610 to see if there was any update. This time there is one and the first one to appear was : Nokia Lumia Update for Windows Phone. This update has two major feature listed :

  • Provides Support for phones without physical camera button.
  • Provides other Windows Phone Improvement

The first point is interesting because I haven’t see a Lumia phone without a camera button and the second update looks like some kind of bug fix as there is another update waiting to roll in after you finish updating it.
