Description

Nokia Lumia 610 is the most affordable Windows Phone we’ve seen so far. It lowers the spec requirements on Windows Phone - it requires less capable processors and less RAM. For example, low-end WP phones will now be able to ship with Qualcomm 7x27A chips and 256MB of RAM. At the same time, the Nokia Lumia 610 aims to come with the same smooth Windows Phone experience and it is confirmed to offer all of WP features. Software-wise you’d get Nokia Maps, Drive, and Nokia Transport with bus and subway directions for over 500 cities that will augment WP. Designwise, the new handset features curvy metallic edges and Nokia describes it to have a "confident feel." The Nokia Lumia 610 price is set at around $255 (189 euro) - the most affordable we've seen Windows Phone go.

  • 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.

The SAR limit stated in the international guidelines is 2.0 W/ kg*. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR of the device while operating can be well below the maximum value.
