Over the last couple of weeks, quite a few Windows Phone handsets received the Tango update. This includes the Samsung Omnia 7, HTC 7 Pro on US Cellular and finally and shockingly, the Dell Venue Pro. What is clearly shocking here is that Dell has rolled out the Tango update for the now discontinued and obsolete Venue Pro. This move should come as a surprise for Venue owners out there, if any. Omnia W owners in India, known as the Focus Flash in the United States, are also reporting that they have got the Tango update for their phone.

The Tango update brings the latest version of Windows Phone (8773) to these handsets, which includes some bug-fixes and minor changes. For starters, Windows Phone Tango includes a bunch of new “nature” inspired wallpapers, along with the ability to send a ringtone via MMS. Other changes include reliable notifications, and some bug fixes related to PIN entry and letter indexing.
Nokia has also started rolling out the Tango update for its Lumia handsets in quite a few regions of the world, including India.
