Nokia trying to sell you on Lumia 610 with a new photoshoot
The Nokia Lumia 610 is the most affordable Nokia Windows Phone, and it’s important for WP in general as it marks the first time Microsoft’s platform is going significantly down in price, appealing even to buyers on a tight budget. The Lumia 610 doesn’t take any significant performance shortcut - Windows Phone is as smooth as ever, and you wouldn’t notice that the Finns have actually cut some hardware corners to arrive at the low retail price of around $250 for the handset.

First comes the presence of a 800MHz processor and a mere 256MB of RAM, and second comes design. The Lumia 610 is the now usual for Nokia colorful plastic amalgamation, but while you may think plastic is nothing premium (you’d be right), the choice of colors does add a certain vibrancy to the phone’s looks.

To underscore how much of a looker the Lumia 610 is Nokia is giving us a brand new photoshoot of the device, and we have to admit it looks sleek under the studio spotlight. Check it all out below and let us know whether such a device could end up in your hands in the future.

Is that in a case? I don't remember it looking that thick. Though, if it's thick to house a monster battery, I'm all for it.

It looks even chubbier than the Lumia 710. Not a bad thing, but not a great thing either... Ah well, at that price, have to sacrifice something

For the price this phone is going to be, especially with NFC its a steal. Its quite good looking compared to the competition at the same price levels.

There is no competitor to this phone at the given price point... None that offer half as much as the L610 does at least...

Yes, atleast until Tango (for lower end WP phones with few features of Mango cut down) arrives...

And on top of that you get the same smooth experience as another Windows phone...oh and by the way ''no force closing or phone freezing at all''.
