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?

Windows 8 is going to terminate applications without any warning/ error message? Where did you read this?


Windows 8 does a couple things. First, it suspends background applications in order to conserve battery. And, second, it has the ability to have background applications save their state and terminate them; restarted apps will load their state and resume where they left off. This isn't a big deal.
