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?

Can you imagine you can buy a whole PC for that price, maybe even with a LCD screen. And the full Window version.
And on average people keep their pc's for about seven years if i'm not mistaken.
While others pay about $500 for a phone every two years.
And hipsters every year. Well maybe some gearsluts as well.
But on the other hand at least they not spending it on drugs:-)
Still feels like a sociatal wealthdrain though.
