Description

The Nokia Lumia 510, the Windows Phone handset that is expected to become Nokia’s most affordable one, has now finally gone official. The device features a spacious 4-inch WVGA screen and a 5-megapixel auto-focus rear camera recording video in VGA resolution at 30fps. The Lumia 510 runs on Windows Phone Mango, but it will get updated to Windows Phone 7.8 bringing the new home screen with smaller live tiles. Being an affordable device, the handset runs on an 800MHz single-core Snapdragon S1 processor along with 256MB of RAM, and features 4GB of internal storage. Sadly, as a considerable downside those 4GB of built-in memory are not expandable.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

    Positioning - This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. There are three main types: GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS. GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
