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?

This seems more of a "high end feature phone" then a low end smartphone. There still seems to be a market for that (now everybody needs a smart phone).

But of course this will also depend on the marketing. If the stores market this as an alternative to iPhone or Galaxy S, then people will hate Windows Phone. If they market this as an alternative to Symbian, then people will like it more.
