The latest phones Windows phone on the market employ a version of the operating system code-named Mango. For months, Microsoft has hinted that in the first half of 2012 we saw on the market a new version of the operating system called Tango , but is not yet clear what Tango brings with it, but the anticipations about chase.
The rumors spread so far suggest that Tango represents a simplified version of Windows Phone and lightweight, designed to run on low-end devices. Last week, Lixin Cheng, CEO of ZTE USA, told AllThingsD blogger that Tango is a “low-end product” Microsoft Windows Phone.
This week has been disseminated more detailed information from The Verge, thanks to reliable sources according to which producers Tango will enable partners to create devices that run on just 256 MB of RAM, which is half of what we find today on Windows phones. In terms of features, as we had anticipated in recent days, it seems that Tango will add support for folders, allowing the collection of live hub.
But what interests us most is Apollo: this version of Windows Phone coming onto the market until the second half of this year and it seems that Windows Phone will directly compete with Android, the operating system enriching small features missing.
Among them are 1280 x 720 pixel resolution display, NFC and dual core processors. Regarding the characteristics of Apollo, we have not the slightest idea of what Microsoft is preparing, although it is likely to work intensively on a partnership with Windows 8.
