Nokia has announced that its Lumia 710 and Lumia 800 are receiving an update that will bring the devices to Windows Phone Tango. Two bigger features the update brings to the devices is the ability to flip-to-silence and tethering. The latter of those will allow users to create a hotspot with their device and share it with up to 5 people.
Other features in Windows Phone 7.10.8773 include:
- Internet sharing enabled
- Resolves keyboard disappearing randomly
- Resolves unlock screen getting stuck
- Improvements to uplink speed
- Improvements to camera quality
- Improvements to proximity sensor
- Improvements to software stability
Sadly, the update is not over the air, so you must hook your device up to a computer and use either the Zune software on Windows or the Windows Phone 7 Connector on Mac.
