Looks like HTC and Microsoft have started rolling out Windows Phone 7.8 updates in select parts of the world, with users in Italy reporting getting the goods. As you can see from the image above, the HD7 received the latest version of the platform it can handle, running firmware version 7.10.8858.136.
The new software is said to make everything run faster, and there are also Windows Phone 8-like changes, including the new home screen with support for resizable tiles.
As I’m writing this, we’ve no information when other countries will get their updates though we hope that will happen sooner rather than later. Heck, I would expect the rest of Europe to follow shortly, with HD7 users in other key countries getting their software fixes during the next few weeks. We’ll let you know when we hear something new on this…
