Now that Tango is being rolled out Nokia has stated what the update provides:

This update brings the following enhancements for US Lumia 900 owners:

  • Flip-to-silence feature
  • Camera performance enhancements
  • Battery performance enhancements
  • Startup sequence performance enhancements

Most Nokia Lumia 900 owners will appreciate the Flip-to-silence feature, which mutes your ringer if you turn the phone over. This will come in real handy if you’re in a meeting or with a close friend and you wish to not be interrupted.

Also, the enhancements will allow users to more reliably be able to open the camera when the phone is locked using the dedicated camera button.

Ok so not Earth shattering but still nice enhancements. This is pretty much what was expected.


  1. Just got me some Tango love. Took nearly an hour. Backup (5GB free) actually went pretty fast, but the update took longer. Total of three updates; OS 8773, OS 8779 and Nokia Firmware/Radio. We all know that 8773 adds new MMS features. Forgot about 8779, which; fixes an issue with app purchases in some regions, and changes the default sync times for emails.

    For those like me, who care about these things,

    Before Update:
    OS: 7.10.8112.7
    Firmware: 2175.1003.8112.12085*
    Hardware: 112.1914.2.0

    Oh, and for those who are wondering, the WiFi Trick (ala iHeartRadio) still works. Yeah!
