The newest venture for Windows Phone is with the Tango update, which will add in a lower tier of handsets that only have 256MB of RAM. This will help to make handsets even cheaper than they already are, and may help to push the platform...

And here we go: as much as Microsoft has dished on Android over the past few months, the issues their platform faces are now fair game to be magnified and pointed out.

As much as Android has been hated on for fragmentation....

Well...lets see if those same folks let MS slide. I didnt even knbow about the lower ram for phones until the Angry Bird story dropped.

EDIT: yea....the dreaded F word is starting to pop up around the 'net.

Its times like this when its not good to be a fanboy....it can come back to bite you..

Now I see that Android have low end phones...with double the ram. The Galaxy S Mini 2 is one. And ppl are defending MS on this saying they are making it easier to tell the difference between low and higher end phones....lol. Doesnt price at launch do that? Retail price? Cpu type and speed can too.

android does have lower phones with double the RAM.
but they are often slow and at some points unresponsive which is not the case with WP.(My friends have a few of those. e.g. Galaxy Y)
they at least ensure consistent OS performance on lower RAM devices.
the app restrictions are gonna be there whether it be android or WP.
