Windows Phone 'Tango' could support over three times as many languages

New rumors out of a developer event in India pegs Tango at some 120 languages, well over three times as many as Mango's total count and likely enough to blanket the majority of the globe in.Windows Phone hardware.

At the same event, speakers apparently also suggested that Windows Phone would be gaining support for C++ code in a future release, lower-level programming likely designed to appease game developers who need to eke peak performance out of the hardware. Android offers the NDK (Native Development Kit) for exactly this reason, so it wouldn't be a big surprise to see Microsoft do the same.

With Windows Phone Tango Microsoft and particularly Nokia are planning to push phones running the OS into numerous markets not presently served, and with such a wide language coverage that means ever wider distribution and hopefully associated sales numbers.
