The Nokia Lumia 610 is now available in Malaysia for RM699. It is already on sale at several Nokia Stores and comes in 4 striking colours – white, cyan, magenta & black. This makes it affordable for anyone to experience Windows Phone, especially youths or mobile users that are upgrading from good old feature phones.
In our rather brief hands on, the Lumia 610 offers a rather smooth experience similar to its expensive siblings. In fact, we felt that the overall build of the Lumia 610 is much more premium than the Lumia 710 and it comes with a nice metallic frame around the screen.
To recap on the specs, it runs on a lower 800MHz processor, 256MB of RAM with 8GB of internal storage. At the front, it has a 3.7″ WVGA display and powering the device is a 1,300mAh battery. Over at the back, it has a 5MP shooter with assisted LED flash. It is also worth pointing out that the Lumia 610 also comes with a dedicated camera button.

UPDATE: Added BlackBerry Bold 9900 into the comparison.
In our previous Samsung Galaxy S III spec comparison, we compared it with its direct rival the HTC One X and its former Galaxy predecessors. Now we are comparing it with the rest of the notable flagship models including the Sony Xperia S, Huawei Ascend D Quad, iPhone 4S and the Nokia Lumia 900.
With the Xperia S in the picture, Sony is in the lead for having the highest pixel density for squeezing 1280×720 pixels display into a compact 4.3″ screen. In terms of camera, it is the highest among the lot at 12MP. However it is one of the thicker and heavier models of the lot. In our review, the Xperia S performs admirably well despite being a dual-core processor and we appreciate the polished interface it has to offer.
Huawei too is going quad core with its Ascend D Quad which is expected to be released in mid 2012. It uses its in-house K3V2 processor which is clocked either at 1.2GHz or 1.5GHz. It is one of the smaller quad-core phones with a 4.5″ screen that has better pixel density at 326ppi. For those that feel 4.7″ or 4.8″ is too big in the hands might find the Ascend D Quad as a more comfortable choice.
In terms of cloud storage, it is worth pointing out that both Apple & Microsoft are bundling their own storage in the form of iCloud and SkyDrive. Overall, looking at all flagship devices launched this year, all of them are on the Micro-SIM bandwagon. So for those who are still using a standard SIM format, you are likely to convert/cut your SIMs if you’re getting a new high end phone soon.
