Hi trobin7,

Microsoft has officially not provided the release date. It is rumored to be early 2013.

Once Microsoft launches the release date Dell will let everyone know if Windows 7.8 update will be available for venue pro.

Please get back to us for further information.

 

Thanks and Regards,
Nikhil M

There is WP7.8 for Dell Venue Pro, but you may need to force update it. Unfortunately, there is no eCompass fix and no Tethering.

Didn't work for me. Several attempts. The instructions aren't terribly clear. Am I supposed to turn cell/wi-fi off on my phone too?

You know how excellent the technical service is. About the force update, google a bit. Two advices:

1. Turn on airplane mode

2. Do not connect your phone to a USB hub. The method work for me.
