Windows Phone 'Tango' Earns Its Proper Name from Microsoft
Microsoft will officially refer to the Windows Phone Tango system update as "Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh," according to WindowsPhoneItaly.com. Stefania Duico, Microsoft's Windows Phone Business Group Lead in Italy, provided the information to WindowsPhoneItaly.com in an interview. Tango strips down the features of Windows Phone so that it will work on less expensive devices. The goal is to help smartphone makers target emerging markets with lower-cost Windows Phones. Some of the removed features include fast-app switching and background processes. The official name for Windows Phone Apollo (the next significant version of the platform) has not yet be given by Microsoft.
