Windows Phone Tango snapped and detailed

Windows Phone Tango snapped and detailedHot on the heels of Windows Phone Mango, Windows Phone Tango is primarily expected to introduce support for handsets with lower specs, alongside a handful of new features for existing WP users.

Ahead of an expected Mobile World Congress unveiling, Windows Phone Tango – or WPT, as no one seems to be calling it – has been leaked by some Russian dudes.

With Tango, Windows Phone peeps will be able to include multiple items in MMS messages, with support for pictures, video and audio; roaming can be set to off, domestic or international; and contacts can be exported to the SIM card.

As for those lower specs, manufacturers will be able to churn out handsets with just 256MB of RAM. Apps that demand more RAM will yield an error message on the Windows Phone Marketplace. Fragmentation, anyone?

As for Windows Phone snappers, you’ll be able to pick up handsets with modest 3MP cameras, down a couple of megapixels from the current range.

We’ll be poking Microsoft in the ribs at Mobile World Congress in… 11 days! Cripes.

Holy cow...export contacts to SIM? Were do they get those ceazily creative ideas?

But one thing's weird: from what I read one of the very few things people like about WP is gaming. How does that wash with those new lowered specs?

You call this fragmentation?

Well, it's not the worst example.
But most 'ordinary' phone users do not know what model or make they use. Fact.
They see people use 'cool stuff'. On a WP handset. Then they think, hey, I'll buy me one of them WP thingies. And then they won't find the app for their type of WP phone. That is a type of fragmentation. Though one that has been around for 'ages'....

But lets not forget, nuddin's written in stone. We won't know until Tango is actually out. Same goes for Apollo - will it or won't it be compatible with current hand.
