Windows A few days ago, Microsoft released the long-awaited Windows Phone 7.8 update for all those users who will be stuck on Windows Phone 7 forever because there's no upgrade path to Windows Phone 8 other than buying a new phone. Now that it's here, what, exactly, does WP7.8 to the table?

I agree with your article and we're disappointed too.

But at the same time, we're very happy.

7.8 has added thai language encoding support in the Internet browser (along with arabic and other Asian languages).

So this is huge, making the Lumia 900 finally usable in Thailand.

We had bought this being told thai language support was on the way but it never happened until 7.8.

Still no Thai Keyboard though sadly but there are (shitty) apps to type thai at least.
