Further details of Microsoft’s rumored Windows Phone “Tango” update surfaced on Tuesday.
Tango is believed to be an interim release between Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” and the next-generation of Windows Phone, currently codenamed “Apollo.” Mary Jo Foley at ZDNet reports that the update could be aimed at low-price Windows Phone handsets. There is reportedly two versions of Tango scheduled for release before Windows Phone “Apollo” is ready. Tango is allegedly designed with Nokia in mind and focused on lowering the price point for entry Windows Phone handsets.
Foley claims that Tango could be targeted at the Asian market. The report backs up recent news around Tango. Windows Phone build 7.10.8200 was recently discovered in server side logs of a Windows Phone application. A screenshot, believed to be a Tango build, also leaked last week and demonstrated a new device search feature for Windows Phones.
Microsoft recently finalised Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” and is expected to ship the update in September alongside a number of new Windows Phone 7.5 devices.
