    the end of wp 7.8 ?!

    Got the wp 7.8 update a month or so ago, and have now discovered that my lumia 710 is about to become obsolete. Anybody care to elaborate on this. Feel very let down by nokia. Now wp 8.0 is here, the rest of us can do what exactly. Don't get me wrong,love the phone but it seems it was never going to be future proof with no more support.

    How do you mean, it is about to become obsolete ?

    I had done some digging around online and had found some information regarding this issue. Apparently,WP 8.0 is to take over the reigns. 7.8 was the last major upgrade for the first wave of lumia's. Already I have noticed a drop in the marketplace. But like I said I love my 710 and to be quite honest I'm not looking to change handset's. It just seem's a shame that's all !!

    Been a Nokia User for the best part of 15 years. Theses sort of rumours are a regular features when Nokia announce that they are no longer supporting a particular model. It doe's not mean that the particular model in becoming obsolete.
    Still using my old N95 as a back up phone with a UK sim when visiting the UK. that hasn't had an update for years.
