Windows Phone 7.8 Will be Released in China Next Month

Microsoft is planning to use Windows Phone 7.8 as an update to some Windows Phone 7.5 devices currently available on the market. A Microsoft official in China said that the OS version would hit the Chinese mainland in the coming weeks. Apparently, it would be Chinese consumers who have the first opportunity to explore the WP7.8 before everyone else. This should be a good thing for users who don’t have plan to upgrade to a WP8 device in order to save money. While the new OS version wouldn’t be able to pull off every trick offered by the WP8, it should keep users interested and happy until more affordable WP8 devices become available. First WP8 devices are expected to arrive in China early next month. Huawei would have home-field advantage, but devices from HTC, Samsung and Nokia are also expected to make some strong showing. Including Huawei, so far only 4 OEMs have supported WP8 and more will come aboard next year.
