Microsoft has extended support for the Windows phone 7.8 devices till 14th October. The actual support expiry date was September 9, but now Windows Phone 7 device owners have few more weeks of support.
Though, without a new update coming to Windows Phone 7.8 running devices, it will hardly mean anything. Hopefully, Microsoft provides some goodness as a parting gift to older devices.
Thanks Vijit for the tip. Cheers!!
