Nokia #1 again in Finland as Nokia Lumia 610 and Nokia Lumia 900 launch

0. phoneArena 27 May 2012, 01:08 posted on

It was a smooth launch day of sales in Finland for the Nokia Lumia 610 and the Nokia Lumia 900; both the entry model 610- and the high-end flagship 900 were the best selling devices for the day although the creeping shadow of the Samsung Galaxy S III could put an early end to the pair's success...

Im willing to buy a nokia lumia 610 but the only thing holding me back is lack of awesome games like temple run and other games like angry birds and fruit ninja have to be paid for.

What is your problem, Skype's been available for all WP7.5 devices for a quite good time.

It's a good secondary phone. Good for communication purposes (except skype, for it is not working due to low ram), but don't expect much of it for games.

good news but where is the tango update for existing wp's :\ they said will be available on release of 610

The Tango update simply lowers the specs requirement of Windows Phone 7.5 without any compromises on performance for budget devices (which is quite controversial, seeing as many apps aren't available for Tango devices because of the low specs).

Samsung has 28% of the market compared to apple's 21%. Samsung's leading smartphones in sales in are Androids (and I doubt 7% of their sales in Finland are bada or Windows phones). Ergo, Android, and just from a single manufacturer, outsells ios. RTFA and do the math next time

yes apple contain 21% in whole phones, but when it come to smartphone, it almost 40%

Mmm, nope mate. How many current smarphone models does Samsung have? 10, 20, 30? How many models, does Apple have now? One. How much of the profit goes to Samsung? 20-25%. How much of it goes to Apple? 80-85%. With ONE phone. Without the help of Google, without copying the design and software of anybody.

NOKIA SURPASS IOS!!!!!

I have tried nokia lumia 610 at nokia store in my country. I should say that experience is worse than lumia 710 as phone is feel as not as responsive than 710. I'm worry 610 would bring bad reputation to entry users who want to move to nokia windows phones. The phone looks pretty though.

i personally also have tried the 610 at a nokia store here in my country but i wont agree with you...

its smooth as the other lumia devices... i comapred it to the lumia 800 and open same apps at the same time on both devices... and it appeared that the lumia 610 is just 1 sec behind in opening or loading apps... so its not a worse experience as youve mentioned in your comment...

the only drawbacks is the low RAM and processor...

I'm surprised you found lumia 610 has smooth experience. But I'm swear i tried 710, 800 and 610. LUmia 610 caught my eyes because its look. But when I tried, omg it lags often. Btw i tried at nokia store in Kuala Lumpur. Different batch maybe?
