On their blog Nokia has confirmed that the new Windows Phone start screen will be coming to their full Lumia range.

They write:

For those who already have Lumia devices with Windows Phone 7.5, you’ll be able to update your phones with some of the new Windows Phone 8 features like the start screen and download new apps from companies like Zynga, whose Words with Friends and Draw Something will be available in Autumn.

They also note the phones will get apps which bring new features, such as Camera Extras with panorama shots, a self-timer, Action Shot for capturing movement and Smart Group Shot for creating the perfect group shot from several different images; new features for Nokia Drive and Nokia Transport; and also distributing a pattern of updates like WiFi tethering, DLNA and flip-to-silence.
