Windows Phone Tango may power budget phones
New Windows Phone 7 update "all about Nokia".
The arrival of the updated Windows Phone Mango is fast approaching, but speculation already abounds over its rumoured follow-up, Windows Phone Tango. While popular wisdom had been that Tango would be an update - Tango to Mango what Gingerbread was to FroYo - a post from ZDNET now suggests that Tango may be a cut-down version of the Windows OS for use on lower-end smartphones.
"One of my contacts... said Tango was “all about Nokia” and focused on hitting the lower-price point for Windows Phones that Microsoft and Nokia execs have been promising." Wrote Mary-Jo Foley on her All About Microsoft ZDNET blog. "My contact also said the Tango release may be focused largely or even exclusively on the Asian market."
