Tango's Catchy New Name Is Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh

By Sam Gibbs on at

Microsoft’s always had a penchant for awful naming of things, but its latest is probably the best I’ve seen in a good while. Windows Phone Tango is now officially known as Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh. What a mouthful.

Of course WP 7.5 Refresh isn’t actually aimed at us; it’s for cheaper devices for “emerging markets”. But come on Microsoft, it’s already bad enough having to say Windows Phone 7 phones, let alone Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh phones. Actually it’s a miracle it didn’t end up getting called something like Windows Phone 7.5 for low-cost devices. Couldn’t it have been something a bit snappier though? How about Windows Phone Budget?
