Windows Phone Tango to bring additional languages, C++ support - read the full textWe already know that the next iteration of Windows Phone, codenamed Tango, will reduce the hardware requirements of the OS so that it could run on devices with slower (and thus cheaper) hardware. Now, Microsoft has announced that Tango will have support for additional languages as well. This...

In the WP marketplace I know I have 60,000 DIFFERENT apps to chose from... Not 30,000 demos and 30,000 full apps.

WP7 is just to warm users up for when Windows 8 comes out and floods all devices.

Maybe in 2 years WP7 will be good, but right now is blah. You buy a Windows Phone just for the sake of being different, but WP7 doesn't stand a chance right now side by side with iOS or Android.

Nokia fanboy PRO said that Nokia WP7 will destroy Android this year. Heck, it doesn't stand a chance even against iOS.

The hype isn't included with WP7 phones ...

Currently growing more than 10k apps a month which is pretty stunning.

Hopefully, WinMo Tango will bring in crucial features such as Bluetooth file transfers and Mass Storage Mode for USB connections. I expect the Windows MarketPlace to develop faster than Samsung Apps for BADA!!

And believe it or not this is true, the SGSII's 1080p videos were crap compared to the N8's 720p videos. For analogy, CS 1.6 in 1080p : CS Source in 720p.

Support more country for the Marketplace! Supporting more languages without the appstore is just pointless.

Guys , this is not the old Microsoft we know, this is a new and awaken Microsoft and they mean business. Before you comment check out WM 7.5 mango, it will put everything else in the shade. It is fantastic, and the Apps are building up daily. Never write off Microsoft because they did not improve, and believe me its not because they could not, they did not. Now they have awaken, and I am enjoying the WM 7.5 Mango tremendously , and I am a die hard Apple fanboy.

Every Android update makes the software demand more from the hardware, and without a decent support for multi core processors, the result is a mess. So I'd rather wait half a year for Tango than hope Google to release something actually fluid.

I think it's still Managed C++, not low level c++.

Also Full HD is completely useless... I have the SGS2 that can shoot 1080p video, but I prefer 720p. Open your eyes.
