WP7.8 on Lumia 610 and Update on Lumia 510

WP7.8 on Lumia 610 and Update on Lumia 510

Every OEM company should take a leaf out of Nokia’s book for not abandoning their older and entry-level devices. Both Lumia 510 and 610 have Windows Phone 7.8 and updates made available for them.

Lumia 510 that launched with Windows Phone 7.8 build 8858 is now getting its firmware updated to 12490 from 12460 as confirmed on Naviferm by the guys from wpcentral. While the exact details of the update are unknown, it’s heartening to see this kind of activity for entry-level phones.

The other device that released originally – Lumia 610 has now been scheduled to get the WP7.8 update. Various retailers, including Carphone Warehouse UK, have sold this device with the update pre-installed.

Do you own either of these phones? Have you got the update yet? Do let us know about the additional features that this update has unlocked.
