One thing you can count on Nokia to do is continually improve the user experience of their devices. While they’re busy pushing forward with their Windows Phone 8 agenda on the 820 and 920 series, they still provide stellar support for devices running Windows Phone 7.X. Their Bluetooth Share for those older handsets has just received an update. What’s new?
Job your memory real quick and you’ll remember back in September that Nokia announced continued support for all their current handsets on Windows Phone 7, two apps were mentioned in specific – Bluetooth Share and Ringtone Maker. Both apps showed up in the Windows Phone
Marketplace Store around mid-December. At the time Bluetooth Share was working fine on 7.5 devices, but Ringtone Maker prompted users to install an operating system update, 7.8 right?
Well the update to Bluetooth Share is giving that same message to users on Windows Phone 7.5, asking users to update their operating system with the Zune software. The app also receives a big version jump, going from 1.0 to 22.214.171.124. So that leads us to ponder aloud, could Windows Phone 7.8 actually be imminent? We can’t exactly tell what's new in this updated version of the app at first blush. The UI is the same, so maybe you can spot something we can't.
We’ve been told to expect Windows Phone 7.8 in the first part of 2013, it’s possible that the update could show up in the next 48 hours. Doubtful, but possible. For those of you with a Lumia 610, 710, 800 or 900 running Windows Phone 7.8 check out this link to hit up the Windows Phone Store, use the QR below, or swipe right in the Windows Phone Central app.
