Lumia 800 Spotted Running Leaked Windows Phone 7.8 ROM
Nokia Lumia 800 owners disappointed at being ineligible for the Windows Phone 8 update, we’ve got some good news for you. A Nokia Lumia 800 has been spotted running what appears to be a leaked version of Windows Phone 7.8.

The WP 7.8 leak was spotted by XDA Senior Member Budniu on Polish Windows Phone forum WindowsMania. It shows off the updated home screen neatly organized with the small app tiles, which look quite beautiful and more productive at the same time.
While the ROM isn’t available for download yet, you can join the discussion thread for more screenshots and watch it in action in the video below.
