Like No-Do was as an interim update, Tango is the interim update between last years Mango update and the upcoming Apollo update. It seems like people have been aware of this update for a while, with handsets running the update being pushed out in China. Its no wonder why people are asking the question, “Where is Tango?”
According to a report by Mi Movil Windows, Tango (finalized as OS build 8773) will begin roll-out in June. While Microsoft had poised this roll-out for late Spring, they pushed it back so operators could have more time to test it. Also Microsoft wanted to have a more unified roll-out that with the Mango launch. Now comparatively speaking, Tango is no where the “500 new features” that Mango brought to the table. That doesn’t mean that Tango doesn’t add some pretty important features.
Features like the ability to send multiple MMS messages and multiple pictures, a location icon to indicate where the phone is accessing your location, and the biggest one is support for devices that have only 256 MB of RAM. While Tango is really meant for Microsoft to get their foot into emerging markets but Windows Phone 8 (Apollo) is hopefully meant to cater to the high of the market. With features like multi-core support and SD card support in tow, perhaps Microsoft can finally be competitive.
