An event held by developers in India revealed more details about Windows Phone Tango. The latest version of WP OS will support 120 languages, which is way more than what the current Mango version offers (35 languages). iOS and Android also have less language support, 34 and 55 languages, respectively.
This is one of the best ways of getting more attention from previously non-available markets. It’s especially true about third world and developing countries, where the command of English and other European languages is in no way good or excellent.
The newest version of OS will also support native C++ code. This is great news for developers wishing to get more out of their handset’s basic hardware. This function is currently being supported by Silverlight, which leaves more to desire when it comes to heavier apps.
Most likely the first devices based on WP Tango will be launched at Mobile World Congress 2012. The first manufacturers to use this version of WP are expected to be HTC and Nokia. There are rumors WP Tango will work smoothly even on low-end handsets, which means we should also expect a WP Tango update for the current Mango flagships of both manufacturers.
