Microsoft temporarily suspends Windows Phone 7.8 updates Microsoft has confirmed today that they have temporarily stopped pushing Windows Phone 7.8 updates.
The software giant is working on a fix for multiple software glitches with the release and it is unclear how long the suspension will be in place.

Phones such as the Nokia Lumia 800, Lumia 900 and Lumia 610 are all affected, adds Nokia.

Nokia says the glitches are minor and the update rollout should resume quickly.

Windows Phone 7.8 is a bridge between the old WP 7.5 OS and the newer WP 8, which requires better hardware specs than seen on the aged phones. 7.8 takes some of the new features of WP 8 such as resizable live tiles, but leaves out quite a few others.
