Windows Phone Tango Build 7.10.8713 Reveals Its Presence

What might be a new Nokia Windows Phone device, possibly codenamed Champagne, was recently identified from its presence in some log files. It self-reported as running build 7.10.8711 of the operating system, which we understand to be an in-development version of the Windows Phone Tango update. We still have plenty questions about both that handset and the Tango update, but it looks like 8711 is already behind the times, with evidence of 8713 appearing for the first time.

News of 8713 comes courtesy of the WP Bench logs. It’s anyone’s guess what’s changed since 8711, but we still like to keep on top of the progress being made, despite largely being in the dark as to the details. Some rumors we’ve heard about Tango in general say we’re looking at the platform finally gaining support for phones with LTE radios. We also expect to see Microsoft reveal some new device standards, using lower-end hardware to allow for the production of more affordable WP7 handsets. Tango will also mark the first update produced with Nokia having input from the get-go, and we expect it to continue with a high level of involvement from here on out. Mostly, though, we’re just waiting for the next big leak to help finish painting our picture of Tango.
