Windows Phone Tango To Touch Down In China March 21

Microsoft is holding a special Windows Phone 7.5 Tango launch event in China to celebrate the introduction of Windows Phone to the country, according to some invites the company sent out throughout the press.┬áSeeing that Tango has paved the way for entry-level devices such as the Lumia 610 — which will likely play a huge role in emerging markets such as China — to exist by lowering the hardware requirements and making some software-side compromises, it is only right that an event be set aside for it.

As we had just reported on earlier today, there’s going to be another event taking place exactly a week from this one; Nokia are hosting a special launch event to celebrate its entry into the Chinese market, during which the Finnish phone manufacturer is expected to announce the specific devices, carriers, and availability dates of its products in the region.

They won’t be the first company to introduce a Windows Phone to China, however; as we know, HTC launched the Triumph — essentially a rebranded Titan — in China earlier this month, beating Nokia, LG, and ZTE to the punch.
