Windows Phone 7 Tango shots – The devil is in the detail

Russian website wp7forum.ru appear to have shots and information about the upcoming Windows Phone Tango release. They highlight a number of changes, including the support of additional countries, an increase on the amount of preloaded apps (from 16 to 40), SIM contact management and importing (ideal for new owners) and finally the ability to add multiple attachments to MMS messages.

There’s also details of a potential issue with devices having 256MB. This is a little puzzling, as Microsoft have also poked fun at Android “fragmentation”. If these details are correct, it’s instant fragmentation for Windows Phone. Devices with 256MB running Tango will be unable to install certain apps and there’ll be other restrictions including podcasts not being manageable, lower-quality video streams and Tiles not updating properly.

    Having been a WinMo user of many years, moved to Android.

    Also recently got a WP7 device…and the MS mobile device ‘epic fail’ journey continues. I can’t even sync with Outlook on my PC…WTF?! I don’t want/need Outlook connector for Hotmail etc etc etc. I just want to be able to sync as I did with WinMo.

    Will stick to Android. No more WP7 devices for me.

      No body cares that you will stick to android. People with WP7 know why they are with WP7. No body cares about your opinion on this article. I don’t know why people go around saying what phone they have….

    Im tempted to try a windows phone as they look great. The thing is they really need to sort themselves out. Yeah its great that Windows Phone doesnt have to be high speced to work, thats great and all, but its the next generation that im looking forward to. When will they go to dual core? 5″ screens look good to me, along with higher capacity storage. I have a 32gb iphone and ive nearly filled it up.

    Would take a lot to make me move, having played with a Galaxy II at the weekend I love the size of the device, its perfect. However being used to the iPhone and after trying other phones I always seem to come back to the iPhone!

    The next iPhone had better be great as im seriously keeping my eyes open for other devices. One thing having an iPhone, I miss changing my device and learning all the different features from one device to the next.

    Roll on June / July.
