- Resizable Live tiles
- Bluetooth Share
- New Store Icon
- Ringtone Maker, App Highlights, Contact Transfer etc.
- Lock screen wallpaper option for Bing
- More Accent colours
- 24 Lockscreen Backgrounds (doesn't appear in the gallery)
- Animations are a little tweaked
- Nokia Tune Remix ringtone
- Xbox and Office icons
- New boot screen
- The ability to add Google as search engine in IE
We're very excited for this update to hit the Lumia 800 officially, especially as it's rumoured be the last update to hit Nokia Windows Phone devices.
Now, if only we could update our Lumia 800 to Windows Phone 8...
