Windows Phone 7.8 update will bypass carriers, include new Start Screen

As rumored previously, current Windows Phones aren’t getting updates to Windows Phone 8 because of the kernel switch from Windows CE to NT. However, there will be an update for current users dubbed Windows Phone 7.8, which will bring over the new Start screen improvements – including a third, smaller tile size and discluding the annoying negative space at the right.

Plus, at least according to Paul Thurrott (we couldn’t find mentions of this features anywhere else), it will be delivered directly to all devices, without interference from carriers.

Will this update be enough for our readers, or should Windows Phone 7.8 include more features?
