The Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone 7.8 update will be rolling out in the near future.
The software update appeared in Nokia's server which showed a version with the number 8858 sitting on the computer. This is actually the final version of the Windows Phone 7.8 OS update which indicates that its roll out will be coming very soon.
It is about 383.85MB big and will bring some new features to the current version of Windows Phone 7.
The update will allow the Nokia 900 to utilize resizable Live Tiles, Bing Wallpaper, and new boot screens. Nokia is also rumored to be adding some new features to the camera not too long after Windows Phone 7.8 goes live.
The Nokia Lumia 900 is now available for $0.01with a new two-year contract on AT&T.
The device features a 1.4GHz processor, 4G LTE connectivity, Bing, Internet Explorer 9, HTML5, and Wi-Fi.
It also comes with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED ClearBlack glass touchscreen that is fused into its one-piece polycarbonate body.
It has an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 1-megapixel camera in the front that is capable of video calling.
The successor to the the Nokia Lumia 900, the Lumia 920 launched on AT&T on Nov. 9, and is Nokia's first Windows 8 Phone in the U.S. market. The device was first unveiled by the company in September.
The Lumia 920 is the successor to the somewhat popular Lumia 800, which ran the previous Windows operating system. The two Nokia handsets share close to identical appearances.
Nokia hopes to capitalize off Microsoft's latest operating system and make itself a valid competitor to Apple and Samsung.
Verizon is also rumored to be a carrier that will offer the Lumia 920 in the future; however, this has not been confirmed by either Nokia or Verizon. If AT&T grabbed a 3-month exclusive with the handset, no other major American carriers will have the Lumia 920 until 2013.
