The emulator test confirms the presence of Fast App Switching in Windows Phone Tango

With the availability of the emulator for Windows Phone Tango we have the first early experiments that test the new version of Microsoft's operating system and the functionality of the Fast App Switching. Andreas Hammar wanted to investigate if the 256 MB of RAM standard for next economic Windows Phone will use this feature, and the answer is yes, with reservations.

Microsoft has left on the Fast App Switching on WP Tango, so it works similarly to the device with 512 MB of memory, but the operating system is entirely dependent of the  applications.
"The Fast Application switching is supported on devices with 256 MB of RAM.Keep your applications "dormant", however, depends on the remaining free memory: app runs on Windows Phone with 256 MB of memory will be completed more often than the same run on a terminal with more memory."
In Redmond have therefore chosen to preserve all the features of WP and developers the task of optimizing the app and adapt to the smaller amount of memory available. We will see in the coming months, the behavior of smartphone with the Tango and the limitation in RAM will affect the experience of everyday use.
