Windows Phone 7.8 was s’posed to be a lovely hey-don’t-feel-so-bad consolation pressie for users stuck on Windows Phone 7 (as Microsoft flaunts WP8), but it’s unfortunately become the punch-based gift that just keeps on punching.
After several delays and a distinct lack of information, the Windows Phone 7.8 rollout appears to have halted, and users who have been updated ain’t particularly happy.
As relayed by WMPoweruser, Vodafone support in Germany has confirmed that the Windows Phone 7.8 rollout has officially stalled.
“Hello. Here is the info about the update,” begins Anke. “Microsoft has stopped until further notice, the rollout of the update. Currently there is a new date for it,” followed by – in all seriousness – a sad smiley.
One reason for the delay, it’s speculated, could be the issue with Windows Phone 7.8’s Live Tiles. Reportedly, they’ve been updating incorrectly, and worse still – in some cases – consuming large amounts of data. Oh dear.
The aforementioned article mentions that only 16% of Windows Phone 7 users have been updated to Windows Phone 7.8, so you can maybe take some consolation in not being alone in the angry boat.
Anyone here rocking an old Lumia or similar on Windows Phone 7? Any sign of Windows Phone 7.8?
