23-Nov-12 Please release me…

After a few weeks of will they, won’t they, Microsoft have now released Windows Mobile 7.8 to the manufacturers, which probably means that we are likely to see a product release of this update over the coming weeks.

For those who are unclear, Windows 7.8 has been released for those individuals who currently have a Windows 7 mobile device that cannot be upgraded to the full mobile 8 experience (including IE10) due to hardware limitations!

For those who invested in Windows 7, this is a tad disappointing and I reckon Microsoft may have missed a trick, as I am not sure these individuals are going to make a further investment in to mobile 8 devices.

The big question for me is whether the applications that are developed for 8 will work on 7.8. If anyone knows the answer to this, please post me a reply?

Personally I cannot wait to see the 7.8 update, as I’m getting a tad bored with the current version and some of its limitations. Some of the new updates sound quite cool, so let’s hope the release is out before the end of this year.

To close out today, one of my favourite pictures over the last 30 years of computing.

And I’m worried about 7.8 running my applications. How life has moved on, because back then, it was whether you had a pocket big enough for your phone?
