The Windows Phone 7.8 is scheduled to be released for Windows Phone 7.5 and the 7.0 operating system based devices like the Nokia Lumia 800, 710 and the Samsung Omnia.
The upgrade is likely to bring a host of new functionalities to these devices including a new Start screen, calendar sharing function called Club and access to key services and content from Microsoft, including Xbox Music Store library that can be enjoyed without Zune and Xbox SmartGlass.
Nokia phones will be getting a feature or two additionally to what Microsoft will be offering in the form of SMS drafts and ability to keep WiFi in the enabled stage even while the device goes in standby.
The Windows Phone 7.8 upgrade will only be about bringing the older devices up to speed with the new age Windows Phone 8 operating system giving them option to get a new look and feel form their older devices overall.
