Nokia Lumia 510 launched with Windows Phone 7.8 out of the box

Nokia is launching the Lumia 510 in India with Windows Phone 7.8 running out of the box. We have a Lumia 510 with Windows Phone 7.8 and we can confirm it offers most of the new experiences that come with the Windows Phone update. The biggest one of these updates is the new homescreen in which tiles can be resized to three different sizes, just like Windows Phone 8. Windows Phone 7.8 also brings the functionality to share files over Bluetooth, a ringtone maker app  and many more add-ons. It will also have the new camera lenses that Nokia is providing to all Lumia smartphones as part of the update.

The Lumia 510 is the only smartphone to get Windows Phone 7.8 in India. However, at the moment Windows Phone 7.8 update won’t be available as an OTA update to existing users and will only be available to those who buy the smartphone with the new OS out of the box. Microsoft had earlier announced it will provide Windows Phone 7.8 update to existing users in early 2013. Something tells us that the update roll-out is not very far off!

We will be sharing our Windows Phone 7.8 experience soon. Do let us know in comments if there is anything specific you’d like to know about this update and we will try and include it in our experience walkthrough.

        well suckers can wait for the 2013 update

      • Dilmeet

        Keep taking this as a Joke and take your stupidity some where else! :) Rather than posting your brain you could have googled up info and updated your phone which I strongly believe is not a LUMIA! LoL

  • Dilmeet

    To All using Nokia Lumia Devices,

    WP7.8 is indeed available for entire Lumia Series for India Region plus they have enabled all features only for APAC Region. Many people in Western regions have reported no change after flash to 12460 Build Version however Indian Region has Bluetooth Transfer, Ringtone App, 20 New Tile Colors, Resize Live Tiles etc. USB Mass Storage is not there and neither was promised so have to wait and watch on this one. As for others just simply google and download Nokia Care Suite which is different from Nokia PC Suite & Nokia Suite. To all idiots who are taking this as a joke-” Ask for help or learn something rather than posting your crap”

    A side note that you can’t take back up and this will format your phone so only stuff that can be synced to cloud can be backed up!

    • vishvak

      kindly provide a link for the nokia care suite download as i am not able to find any. google only turns up links for nokia suite and nokia pc suite both of which, as you said, are not for the lumia devices…

  • Sonu

    Wonderful post. Can you confirm how many memory will be left on the Lumia 510 on WP 7.8 handset, as I heard among 4GB internal Memory, only 1.7GB will be left for the user to use on WP 7.5.

    So I’m just wondering the new WP 7.8 updated phone will have any memory left to use. :)
