Nokia Lumia 800 Gets Updated with Firmware 8773.98 and Internet Sharing

Finally, received the update notification from my Nokia Lumia 800. After the disappointment that Nokia 800 update is not in the pipeline, I seriously do not know which update I am getting.

The first update is to version 7.10.8112.7. I click on the “More Info” to get details about this update. I could not find this version. Eventually, I realized that this is just part of the update.

After completing the first update, the second update continues. The phone was updated to Version 7.10.8773.98

I could find information on this update. From Windows Phone, it states: –

Update 7.10.8773.98

Messaging. Adds new messaging capabilities to your phone. You can now attach multiple pictures, videos, audio notes, and ringtones to text messages.

Other quality improvements. Includes many other improvements to Windows Phone.

This update is not available in all markets or for all phones.

The final surprise came was when I thought everything was over, It had another update. This time, it states NOKIA update for Windows Phone with no details.

Guess what, Lumia 800 has Internet Sharing (finally).

BTW, here is the final firmware version.

That is it. Now, I have to wait patiently for Windows Phone 7.8.
