New builds of Windows Phone showing up on stats sites

The latest release of Windows Phone is 7740, but stats sites are showing builds much more advanced being tested at present.

The usual stats sites have caught Build 8713 out in public, above running WPBench.  WPSauce believes the build represents Tango, which is expected to bring support for technologies like NFC and LTE, and also much wider language support.

These ever increasing build numbers serves as a reminder that Windows Phone 7 is under constant development, and with a good stream of updates already under the best we can expect further improvements down the line for out existing handsets.
