Windows Phone 'Tango' would be easy on the RAM - read the full textThe lower RAM footprint may be viewed as an attempt by Microsoft to make their mobile OS more compatible with cost-conservative phones. In light of the current partnership between Windows and Nokia, it makes sense that Microsoft would want to improve Windows Phone OS amongst mid-tier mobile...

If someone is going to troll on a blog about incorrect grammar, they should atleast have the brain capacity to use correct grammar and typing skills, especially when they are attempting to troll a poster who's first language is obviously not even english.

But i do fancy a good book actually, I'll choose one which you won't even be able to understand. Something like a childs book :)

Android cant even run on 256MB properly, its like Vista on 512MB.

Face it, every android handset lags, whether its got dual/quad core and gigs of ram. Just look at ICS, lag is really REALLY bad.

In the phone it uses the same cache as the proc, but the processor is not responsible for the gaming performance..
The processor only maintains the thread when running.
So dual core is not utilised..
Only during extensive multi-tasking(which is not done 99.9% of the times on a mobile device), the dual core, or dual threads are executed, for example, playing a video file, while playing game at the same time.
So 1.2Ghz DUAL core is quite simply same as a 1.3Ghz single core.....
So you can see, the single core Intel processor(newly launched) can outperform even the high end duals and even quads....

Typical PC mindset. This isn't going to go well for Windows Phone platform. Microsoft should just take it in the gut and cut licensing fees. Build up market share than raise the fees. After all, is a 256MB device really that expensive? What more single core? 5MP camera? 8GB memory? Now user A would have bought a Tango device and said to User B "Hey why can't my Windows Phone do that".. In which the answer is, "I'm Mango and you're Tango". User A then asks "what's the difference?". User B explains the difference between 512 and 256.. User A says "WTF?" And proceeds to Android where the baseline version now is 1Ghz, dual core, 8GB and 8MP camera devices, priced cheaper than any Windows Phone.
