wp bench 8733A new Windows Phone 7 build number has shown up on the WPBench  benchmarking site.

Build  8733 was added around 4 days ago, and is believed to represent the Tango branch of Windows Phone 7 development.

The latest post-Mango current build out officially pushed to devices is 8107.

While it is not confirmed, it is suspected that we will be seeing and hearing a lot more about Tango at Mobile World Congress, with the possibility of devices running the OS hitting market in the Q2/Q3 time frame.

imageUnfortunately at present WPBench numbers should be treated with caution, as hackers have found a way to contaminate the data again.

The build number does however also show up in the Lyn x Interactive database, where it is associated with the enigmatic Nokia Champagne.
