An early update on Windows Phone 7.8 release–coming in Q1-2013

Yesterday Microsoft Windows Phone Team announced the availability of Windows Phone 7.8 to existing Windows Phone 7.x family of devices by early 2013.

Some of the interesting features announced are:

  • New Customizable start screen with resizable Live Tiles.
  • It doubles the number of theme and accent colors—to 20—so you can make your phone even more personal.
  • There are also new lock screen features: the option to automatically display the Bing Picture of the Day plus the ‘A1B2C3’ PIN/password challenge to prevent accidental device wipes on phones connected to Exchange accounts.
