- Windows Phone Tango
We all are waiting for the official premiere of Windows Phone Tango to take place during CES 2012, but Microsoft apparently has other plans and the next version of the mobile platform is still “upcoming”. Maybe it will be presented during the Mobile World Congress next month, but there is some new details about the expected capabilities of the Tango update.
Windows Phone Tango is an intermediate OS version, which will reduce the hardware requirements for phones and also will allow a mass production of budget devices running Windows Phone OS – something that Nokia and all other Microsoft’s partners want.
The information is not confirmed yet, but already was distributed to some of the biggest tech sites, including The Verge. One of the ways that Microsoft will use to cut the final price of the phones is by reducing the RAM memory requirements to 256MB (in addition to the current minimum requirement of 512MB). Also, we have some other information that Windows Phone Tango will add the ability to create custom folders and pin them as Live Tiles on the main screen.
