Keen on what the next iteration of Windows Phone is going to look like? Well apparently, a Russian site has leaked out what are purported to be Windows Phone “Tango” screenshots. For those not in the know, Tango is the next version of Windows Phone that is supposed to bring the mobile platform to developing countries. Windows Phone Tango will include support for additional languages, and will bring down the minimum Windows Phone requirements to needing only 256MB of RAM and a 3-megapixel camera, which makes it suitable for low-end phones that cost very little.
In addition to features that make the app usable on low-end devices, Windows Phone Tango is also said to carry improvements such as the ability to export contacts to SIM, domestic/international roaming, the ability to support multiple attachments in a single MMS, and a native voice recording app for MMS messages. The phone is also expected to ship out with more apps by default.
