I dont know. I'm happy I get an update on a two year old phone (even if it isn't substantiative). Now if I had bought the phone in the past six months I probably wouldn't feel the same way.

Lumia 900 is less than a year old, and the Lumia line is the most successful in sales.

This is called battered Android user syndrome. For them, any update is better than the status quo, even if it is totally useless.

The fun thing is - the average point release for an Android launcher brings more new features than this useless 7.8 thing.
