Windows Microsoft has disclosed just which limitations Windows Phone 'Tango' will have on low-end devices (256MB RAM). It's pretty hefty - most importantly, the ability to 'multitask' has been disabled. Aren't there more powerful unlimited Android phones out there? What's the point of all this?

The WP7 can't run on that low-end hardware.

When you talk about Nokia feature phones that sells like hot cakes in emerging markets, you speak of things like Nokia C3 or Nokia E5. No way that you can trim enough features of WP7 for it to run smooth on that hardware, even in one or two years, without rising the price and get punched to the sidelines by Samsung and LG.
