 Nokia Lumia 610 Available now
27th February 2012

The most affordable Windows smartphone from Nokia yet, the Nokia Lumia 610 takes advantage of the latest "Tango" release of Windows Phone 7.5, aimed at making Windows available on more modest smartphones.

Priced at just €189 before tax and subsidy, the Lumia 610 is a fair bit cheaper than the Lumia 710 and an awful lot less than Nokia Lumia 800. But then, the hardware is a lot less powerful too, the Lumia 610 only has an 800 MHz processor, 256MB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory, plus a mid-sized 3.7" 480 x 800 pixel TFT display.

On the back is a 5 megapixel camera capable of VGA resolution video capture, and on the front.. is no camera at all, because Windows doesn't yet support it. All the usual smartphone features are here including GPS, 3.5G and WiFi support, Bluetooth, a multimedia player, a web browser plus some pocket versions of Microsoft Office. One key selling feature with the Nokia Lumia range is Nokia's own mapping application, included as well on the Nokia Lumia 610.

The Lumia 610 measures 119 x 62 x 12mm and weighs 132 grams. The 1300 mAh battery is quoted as giving up to 9.5 hours talktime and 30 days standby time on 3G, which is pretty impressive if accurate.

Windows Phone 7.5 looks like no other operating system, and it is refreshingly different from its Android and Apple rivals. At this price, the Nokia Lumia 610 offers pretty decent value for money as well. Nokia say that the Lumia 610 should be available from Q2 2012 in white, cyan, magenta and black colours.
