Viber And Tango Temporarily Banned In Bangladesh
Maybe a decade or two ago, trying to organize a mass protest would be difficult as it would basically have to rely on word of mouth for it to spread.

Samsung Omnia W ready to take Windows Phone Tango route
Looks like Windows Phone is about to do the Tango tango – pardon me, I just could not resist that dig, with the Samsung Omnia W.

At […]


Dell Venue Pro receives Windows Phone Tango update
So you own a Dell Venue Pro, one of the first Windows Phone-powered smartphones in the market, which has aged rather gracefully I might add at nearly 2 years old.

After all, one user in […]

Windows Phone "Tango" renamed Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh
The Windows Phone “Tango” update is slated to arrive later this year, but it looks like it’ll be released with a different name. According to reports online, the update will be renamed as “Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh”. Seeing how it doesn’t really bring anything new to the table besides enable OEMs to produce lower-spec’d Windows Phone devices, it makes sense to keep it named Windows Phone 7.5, but the “Refresh” […]

All right, the future Windows Phone Tango update is not going to cut the mustard against C3-PO when it comes to mastery of languages, but we do know that this particular operating system update is going to be able to support up to 120 languages, making it a truly international handset to own. It makes perfect sense though – if you as a company want to release a device that […]

Tango beats Google to video calls on Nexus S
Google’s launch of the Nexus S was somewhat marred by the fact that the Google Talk app did not carry the video chat feature that was revealed earlier, and no applications on the Android Market also worked with the handset.
