AT&T customers who took the plunge on Nokia’s
Lumia 900 have had to sit idly by and watch Windows
Phone 8 supercede the software loaded on their own
devices, but they’ll soon be able to experience at
least part of what WP8 brings to the table. Nokia
announced earlier today via Twitter that the Windows Phone 7.8 update is now available to owners of the
one-time AT&T flagship. Better late then never, as they say. In case you haven’t been keeping track (after all,
that’s what I’m here for), Nokia began the process of
bringing Windows Phone 7.8 to the Lumia-owning
masses back in February. All that’s really changing
here is that the Lumia 900 will get a minor facelift —
think (among other things) the inclusion of Windows Phone 8′s oft-updating Live Tiles, improved lock
screen security, and the ability to share internet
connections. Sadly, since the update is mostly
cosmetic, Lumia 900 owners looking to fiddle with
some of the new Windows Phone 8-optimized apps
that Microsoft and its developer partners have been touting lately will have to wait until they splurge on
some new hardware first. If we’re being honest, those Lumia 900 owners have
had their share of issues to deal with — not only were
they stuck with a device that could never be updated
to Windows Phone 8, early production runs yielded
Lumia 900s that just couldn’t consistently latch onto a
wireless data connection, prompting Nokia to push out a software fix and offer a credit for affected
consumers. I suspect that a decent chunk of 900 owners will just
be glad that the update is finally out there, but their
eyes may soon be drawn to an even newer batch of
Windows-powered handsets shortly — Nokia is
reportedly preparing to show off some new Lumias at
a London event in less than a week.
