Microsoft’s phone rivals, Google and Apple, have updated their respective platforms multiple times already. The latest is Apple’s iOS 5 which features new multitasking, new web browser, deeper Twitter integration, PC free feature and so much more, while Google’s latest offering is the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The document, assuming that it is accurate, says the upcoming Windows Phone Tango will offer “products with the best prices,” but no word yet about the operating system’s add-ons. Meanwhile, the Apollo update is expected to include the advanced “business” or enterprise support alongside “competitive volume.”
