I think they just want to ride the buzz for a bit before announcing Tango. Remember Tango isn't going to be as impressive as Mango so it makes sense to not make a huge deal about it.

If they weren't real then Microsoft wouldn't have wasted time creating websites and apps to get feature suggestions for the next release. They also wouldn't have wasted 20 minutes of their CES conference promoting WP7. They also wouldn't be investing upwards of for marketing $200 million with Nokia in the US alone.
So yes, there is no reason to feel uneasy

Windows mobile has been around for a while. I've had 5.0, 6.0 and 6.1. It's not going away, plus with the money they are investing in advertising the Nokia line in the states.Check out the great deals on Windows Phone Accessories: http://store.wpcentral.com

is tango supposed to be offering any new features? I was under the impression it was aimed at lower end devices.
That said I wish they would bring out something with a few of the items that really separate it from the big boys, ie notifications, etc. They are really close, getting some really good exposure, and I would hate to lose that momentum.

This is exactly why this will be Microsoft's last showing at CES, product launches don't coincide with the show.
Plus there have been showings of WP8 tablets. So I'm sure plans are in the pipeline.

First, Microsoft announced at CES LTE support which is huge for U.S. carriers.
Second, Microsoft had always announced the next version of Windows Phone at Mobile World Conference. Isn't this pretty much well known fact?

"Kill the platform"?? Steady on there!! Be chilled (:D), MS aren't killing anything off right now or even in the distant future. MS and Nokia currently totally committed to Metro UI and Windows Phone.

Tango 2 will be targeted at low-cost devices and include fixes and new features, as well as services and language support for markets that still won’t have been addressed after the Tango1 release. I got this from wmpoweruser.com
Tango 2 will be aimied at low-cost devices but will include fixes and also new features. I am sure Microsoft is listening and I am going to guess maybe throw Skype into the mix. There is now way Nokia will Launch a flagship device with no dedicated webchat app sorry Tango (video chat) isn't going to cut it.
By the look of things WP 7 to WP 7.5 was HUGE and I expect WP 7.5 to WP 8 will be even bigger.
Also the WP buzz is huge right now WP and Windows 8 won CES IMO
Also CES is about electronics = hardware not software
