How to force update Nokia Lumia 800 to Windows Phone 7.8

As you know some of us have had no luck getting the official update. So here is a guide to update. http://www.windowsphonehacker.com/articles/want_windows_phone_7.8_now_try_this_easy_tool-01-31-13 It does three separate updates. Takes about half hour to do all, just leave it be until it says “All Done”.   Read the instructions. They are easy, but their is a disclaimer as with anything like this. Basically you need to download the program and then the Microsoft updater (it does this for you). Extract the updater, and install the 32/64 bit version depending on your windows, and run the original program. I was shocked by how much extra screen real estate the update gives. I have to admit I didnt like the look at first, but once...

Windows Phone 7.8 still not updating for T-Mobile UK customers

I have checked on the Nokia website and it displays a newer firmware edition to the one on our Lumia 800, but it still does not show as an update in Zune or on the phone. Nokia have since said the update will be spread over three weeks across territories.   Find out your firmware here Hopefully it will be here over the...

Ubuntu Phone OS Video Demo CES 2013

Many have been waiting eagerly for all the latest phone tech at CES, and Ubuntu Phone OS is one of the items I really look forward to. Shown at CES 2013 in Vegas today this video shows how Ubuntu Phone works hands on. Obviously this is still a prototype but it looks silky smooth already. Ubuntu Phone is aimed at emerging markets, so this high end smoothness could be achieved on a lower end phone. The video shows navigating through picture galleries to be very intuitive, and excellently presented. Ubuntu desktop has always looked very modern and clean, and the phone version looks to build on this. For those that do not know, Ubuntu Phone OS is designed on...
