Windows Phone "Tango" dances its way onto the scene?

We're still a little ways away from Mango's official release, and already it's successor, Tango, may be skulking around in the shadows. Using an app called Dude, Where's My Update?, which tracks what versions of WP7 people are running on what devices, Japanese site Nanapho, spotted a previously unknown version 7.10.8200. As it turns out, this might be Tango, the expected interim release between "Mango" and "Apollo" aka Windows Phone 8.

Though Tango has not been formally detailed by Microsoft, Nanapho says that it will include better Bing, improved Bluetooth, Internet Explorer 10 and Skype integration. Most interestingly, there also seems to be some Nokia-specific programming. We know that the next major version of Windows Phone will be called "Apollo," and that news about Tango came from Compal, an ODM who will be manufacturing handsets for Nokia.

"Improved Bluetooth" = Video A2DP?

This version appeared in this app about 2 weeks ago. I thought it would be the version that was RTM that's how long it has been there.

Perhaps Phonebook Profile support for handsfree calling in vehicles? Or it could be support for OBEX and/or FTP. There is much to be improved in Windows Phone 7's Bluetooth support, especially compared to the amazing Bluetooth capabilities of Windows Mobile.

I do hands free calling with vehciles all the time. The most recent vehicles I've done it with is any Ford vehicle with Sync, and a 2011 Volvo S60. The Volvo S60 even promped to DL my phonebook automatically and even listed call log on its screen.Some vehciles I've noticed you have to go into the vehicle's bluetooth setting and tell it to download the phone book from the phone. I do this all the time in rental cars and it works.

I assume I'm not the only one who cannot get BT audio from avi or mp4 videos to a Plantronics P590? Hope this get's fixed soon.

BT audio doesn't work with any videos under any handset, not just the ones you listed.

I cant answer calls with my Nokia BH505 headset either, but I can use the voice control for sms, but the volume is too low and on a busy street you cant hear it.

When they mentioned that Apollo will be the Windows Phone 8, then we will get it as an upgrade, right?
