Windows Phone Tango in June?

Windows Phone Tango in June?It’s not too easy to get excited about Tango, since it essentially paves the way for Windows Phone handsets with lower specs than we’ve become accustomed to. How does 256MB of RAM sound?

In any case, we’re hearing that the Windows Phone Tango update will start rolling out in June.

We were originally expecting Windows Phone Tango to drop in April, but the latest word from Rumour Street is that it’s been held back to allow more operators to complete testing, allowing for a Mango-style universal rollout.

As well as supporting Windows Phones with lower specs, we’re also told to expect, er, enhanced MMS capability. If that doesn’t get people on board the Windows Phone train, I don’t know what will.

Tango and its low-priced handsets will inevitably extend Windows Phone’s market share, but the downside is that it kinda introduces fragmentation, as some apps won’t be compatible.

Microsoft recently detailed the other limitations of Windows Phone handsets with just 256MB of RAM.

And just to confuse matters, some folk are now referring to Tango as Mango Refresh. Aww Jeez.

enhanced MMS capability
People ever actually used MMS? To begin with they were hideously expensive, now you might as well just send a (free) email. I never have seen the point in MMS messages.

MMS MMS MMS. - nope, typing it 3 times doesn't make it any more interesting.

I forgot to mention that in my (admittedly limited) experience, MMS messages tend to be pretty unreliable.

'Microsoft have announced they will release yet another Windows 7 variation called Limbo using a maximum of just 128mb to compete with feature-phones.

They felt price wise Mango and Tango didn't lower the bar enough.'
