Paul Thurrott believes Tango will be called Windows Phone 7.5.1 and it will mark a shift in Microsoft’s [...]

According to recent reports, Windows Phone Tango will offer support for 85 languages in addition to the currently supported 35 in Windows Phone (Mango), for a total of 120. The information was brought by WPSauce that [...]
