Windows Phone update history page lists Tango upgrades

The Windows Phone "Tango" upgrade has been pre-installed on a number of devices, including the Nokia Lumia 610 and the European version of the Lumia 900. However, the Tango update has yet to be released for existing Windows Phone devices. Now Microsoft has updated its Windows Phone update history page that lists what's new in the Tango version.

The update has the official build number of 7.10.8773.98. The page gives some information on what's included with this new upgrade. In terms of messaging, the Tango version allows users to "attach multiple pictures, videos, audio notes and ringtones to text messages". The Tango build also lets Windows Phone owners "export phone contacts to a SIM card and selectively import SIM card contacts to your phone."

Finally, the page says that Tango adds "many other improvements to Windows Phone." Yep, that's about as vague of a description as you might get, but there it is.

Again, while the Tango version of Windows Phone is pre-installed on a few new Windows Phone devices, there's no word from Microsoft or any of the wireless carriers that sell Windows Phone products when it will be made available to download for all those existing devices currently on the market.

They should be ashamed to call this an OS update, this shouldnt be more than a maintenance patch.

+1, I was expecting more from them, and it took so long to release it, and yet - we still have to wait for phone manuf. to release it for our phones, T_T

More like the carriers....ahem...AT&T.....

Why argue over semantics? Besides, ashamed? I think they should be proud of their work.

By the way, where do they ever call it an OS update? They just call it an update.

You ask why argue over semantics, only to argue about semantics yourself.

They never said it was a major update or anything. Officially it's called a WP 7.5 refresh. While it doesn't bring with it loads of new features it does however bring even more performance optimizations which are never a bad thing.

They've been pretty clear that this is a minor update. They are following a major / minor release schedule. Good grief, some people you just can't please...

Please tell me they have repeating notifications - like repeat text message notifications! I will jump back onto the WP7 bandwagon!

Wait. I thought Windows Phone didn't suffer from update flaws like this. Someone lied to me.

What in the world are you talking about?

I thought all Windows Phones got the update all at once? Wasn't that an argument used against Android (fragmentation) for a while now?

Sorry if that wasn't clear for you.

Wow, a list of ongoing and consistent list of updates that increase features and apply fixes.

The Tango release was stated that it would roll out on devices first and be available as updates later.

Tango is a reduced footprint specifically targeted towards new lower end devices. With no major outstanding security issues, the timeframe for updates to other devices has been scheduled for June/July with no imperative timeline.

So everything is on track...
