Nokia and Microsoft held a developer event today in Singapore focussing on Windows Phone 8 development.

There our tipster, and all the other attendees, were told by the  head of Nokia Asia Pacific Developer himself that Windows Phone 7.8 has RTM’ed this week, and that we should expect the update to be released to devices in a matter of days to weeks, but certainly not all the way into 2013.

He also confirmed Windows Phone 7.8 will not receive IE10 as the browser was fully hardware accelerated, which Windows Phone 7.8 hardware did not support.

Other titbits was that the Nokia Lumia 920/820 Recommended Retail Price (RRP) and release date for Singapore will be announced on 27th November  with device availability in early December, and that the device there will be penta-band and support LTE world-wide.

Do our readers think will see the OS update soon, or is 2013 more likely? Let us know below.
