Nokia unveils Lumia 610: a Windows phone for the masses


Thought that the PureView 808 was the only Nokia phone that caught our eye this past MWC? Far from it. Our attention was drawn to another recent release of the firm from Espoo this past week – the Lumia 610. While it’s far from being the hardware powerhouse that it’s bigger, Symbian toting, 41-megapixel sporting brother is, the Lumia 610 is possibly one of the most affordable Windows Phone 7 devices we’ve seen, and is slated to retail for about 189 Euros, or about Php 10,700 before taxes. Hardware-wise this device really doesn’t impress that much – 3.7-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen, 800 MHz processor, 5-megapixel camera and toting the latest version of Windows Phone 7 (Mango). Nokia says this little number should land around the second quarter of 2011.
