It looks like Microsoft will be showing off the latest version of their smartphone OS, Windows Phone Tango, at CES 2012 in January, which would tie in with Nokia’s recent announcement that they are holding a Windows Phone event at CES.

Windows Phone 7 hasn’t quite caught up to iOS or Android, but the Mango update with its 500+ upgrades sure made a significant dent. Now, we’re ready for the next major update to Microsoft’s smartphone platform and it looks like next month’s CES is where they’re going to reveal the Tango update to WP7.

Windows Phone Tango doesn’t sound like it’s going to be nearly as substantial as its tropical fruit-named predecessor, but it will reportedly still bring some new moves to the dance floor. For instance, we’re hearing that it’ll get support for smaller screens, smaller chassis sizes, and even LTE. Considering all the LTE-equipped Droids out there, that’s a good thing for Redmond.

Windows Phone Tango is expected to bring a range of new features to Windows Phone devices, which include support for LTE, and also support for smaller devices with smaller displays.

But it takes two to tango! There’s a good chance that Nokia will be showing off its new Nokia 719 and Nokia 900 at CES, both of which could very well ship with Tango right out of the box. The newest WP7 update is rumored to be released “soon” after CES.

 

The Nokia Lumia 710 was announced at the same time as the new Nokia Lumia 800, and now it looks like the device is about to go on sale from today in Taiwan, and in the next seven days it will also land in Singapore, Hong Kong, India and Russia.

Nokia has also said that the Lumia 710 will be rolled out globally within the coming weeks, and as we recently heard it is headed to T-Mobile in the US, we should get a US launch date some time next week.

The Nokia Lumia 710 is a cheaper Windows Phone 7.5 Mango phone compared to the Lumia 800.

In terms of specs, the Lumia 710 also packs quite a punch.  It uses the same 1.4GHzprocessor and 3.7-inch ClearBlack display found on the Lumia 800 although camera resolution is lower at 5-megapixel camera but is nonetheless capable of recording 720p HD video at 30 frames per second. The handset also includes a 512MB of RAM, 8GB of storage and a 1,300mAh battery.   The phone can be personalized with exchangeable back covers, first popularized by Nokia in their 5110 handset.

Other features on the Nokia Lumia 710 include 512MB of RAM, plus a 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash and it can record HD video in 720p at 30 frames per second, there is also a 1,300 mAh battery and it comes with Bluetooth 2.1, A-GPS, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and a micro USB port.

It will be priced at €270 or about P16,000.  It is available in black and white with black, white, cyan, fuchsia and yellow back covers.

On the back, there’s a 5-megapixel camera that can also capture video – ideal for holiday snaps and days out.

Free-form, differently-sized, live widgets: widgets like the clock, email, music player, favourite contacts and the calendar have been redesigned and now come in five different sizes and rearranged to create a completely personalised set of screens. There are also new ‘Toggle’ widgets for tasks like switching on Bluetooth and changing profiles.

Improved status bar: the status bar sports a modern, flat look and incorporates a pull down notifications tab that incorporates common settings and notification of incoming messages, missed calls and the rest.

Modernised navigation: the navigation and options bar at the bottom of the screen sports a modern, new look, similar to that first seen on the Nokia N9.

New apps: a new suite of powerful business apps from Microsoft includes Lync (IM for businesses, like Microsoft Communicator), Sharepoint, OneNote, Exchange ActiveSync and PowerPoint Broadcaster.

Informative lock screen: the lock screen now tells you about missed calls, messages in your inbox and more, so you can check your phone at a glance. You can now also add a coloured wallpaper to your lock screen.

Nokia’s certainly made it tough to be a resident of the U.S. that’s dying to give one of their Windows Phones a spin, as the company has unveiled both the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 for release overseas but has been pretty quiet on any sort of launch info for us in the States. If a new rumor about a U.S.-bound Nokia Windows phone is true, though, the wait may just be worth it.

According to a source speaking to BGR, Nokia is prepping a flagship device named the Lumia 900 for a stateside launch early next year. The Lumia 900 is said to feature “the same basic identity as the Lumia 800” and will reportedly include a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, 1.4GHz processor and an 8-megapixel camera. The source added that the 900 may be running Windows Phone Tango, which is believed to be the version of Microsoft’s OS that’s part of the transition between Mango and Windows Phone Apollo.

According to a recent report from the BGR, the Nokia Lumia 900 will share many of the specifications of the recently launched Lumia 800, but this new device will feature a larger display.

The Nokia  Lumia 900 is expected to feature a 4.3 inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, and a single core 1.4GHz processor plus an 8 megapixel camera, and it may come with the new version of Microsoft’s mobile OS, Windows Phone Tango, we could possibly see it at CES 2012 in January.

Its look like Nokia now are developing more versions and new phones in the market!
