If you were paying attention last week when Microsoft started talking about its next OS update for existing and new low-end phones, you’d know that they never actually called it Tango. Long rumored to be the codename and then later confirmed, Microsoft still made the odd decision to just call it the ‘new update’ (looks like Apple borrowed that idea too).
Well if it’s not going to be called Tango, then what will it be called? Mobility Digest discovered the answer through keen eyes. First in the Windows Phone Developer Blog post detailing the new update’s reach, well-known Project Manager for Windows Phone Cliff Simpkins responded to a comment and referred to the update as “Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh OS”. Then Ben Riga, a Windows Phone evangelist from California, had a slip of the digital tongue when he tweeted a link to the same article and used the same exact name for the update.
We don’t know about you, but between this and “Windows Phone 7.5 Commercial Release 2 (Mango + LTE)” found on the HTC Titan II and Nokia Lumia 900, it’s pretty obvious Microsoft still needs some help in the naming department. So we’ll just stick with Tango for now if that’s okay with you guys.
