Nokia Lumia 510 teased by Nokia India, coming soon
And the latest clue to confirm the existence of the Nokia Lumia 510 comes courtesy of Nokia India, which posted the following on its Facebook page: "610 - 100 = ? Stay tuned. Coming soon." The post (now pulled) makes it clear that Nokia will once again push the boundaries to just how cheap a Windows Phone can get, after doing that earlier this year with the announcement of the Lumia 610. But just how cheap will it be?

Well, we don't really know for sure, but some say it might be offered for as little as $150 off-contract in select markets. And that's not bad considering the rumored hardware specs of the Nokia Lumia 510: 4-inch WVGA screen, 800MHz processor, 256MB of RAM, and a 5-megapixel camera.

Nokia Lumia 510 teased by Nokia India, coming soon
All in all, the smartphone is a lot like a Lumia 610, yet with a bigger screen slapped up front. As far as software goes, the Lumia 510 will most likely run Windows Phone 7.8 either out of the box, or with an update after its release.

The Nokia Lumia 510 is expected to launch in China, India, and probably other emerging markets in the near future. Will it ever come to Europe or the U.S. remains unclear.

Thanks for sending this in!

I think WP8 in the $150 range will be hard to come!! 7.8 is quite okay for that price range...it's cheap. And one thing it's going to be is cheaper by the time!! :)

and people who are the target of this type of phone usually don't care what os version it is as long as its a touchscreen phone . which is the reason why cheap touchscreen phone are doing very very well in the emerging market.

Hope the 510 gets released in the Philippines at the $150 price point, which is what the cheap Samsung Androids are priced at.

The advantage of the 510 over the cheap Samsung Androids are the 4.0" WVGA screen and the 5MP camera since the cheap Samsungs only have 3.0" QVGA screens and 2MP cameras.

These advantages definitely give more choice to the people, but one shouldn't forget its disadvantages (lack of micro sd slot and probably only 4 gb internal memory).

I feel that the more Nokia gets success, the more prices of mobile phone get pushed down. Go Nokia...
