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.
