Microsoft has provided more information about Windows Phone Tango, a somewhat less-capable version of the operating system that is meant to work on low-cost devices. According to Microsoft, Tango allows handset makers to design phones that operate with just 256MB of RAM. Due to the halved RAM, Microsoft says that Tango phones will not be able to: run all apps from the Marketplace; manage podcasts or watch video podcasts; automatically upload photos to SkyDrive; play some HD video codecs; use Local Scout; or use the fast app switching multi-tasking tool. Microsoft also offered some guidelines for developers so that they can make sure their apps are optimized for Tango.
