Nokia has finally revealed the Nokia Lumia 610, an entry level Windows Phone for the masses. At a lower price point of €189 which is about RM770, this makes really affordable for people to get on the Windows Phone bandwagon. While it also runs on Windows Phone 7.5, the Lumia 610 is actually running on a different variant called Tango that allows it to run on devices with lower RAM and processor while still maintaining an optimal user experience.
In terms of specs, the Lumia 610 runs on a single core 800MHz Qualcomm processor with 256MB RAM, 8GB of internal storage and a 1,300mAh battery. At the front, it has a 3.7″ WVGA TFT display which pushes 800×480 resolution. In terms of imaging, it comes with a 5MP camera with assisted LED flash.
The Lumia 610 comes with a choice of 4 colours – white, cyan, magenta & black. It is expected to start shipping in Q2 2012.
The next device which they have announced isn’t exactly new which is the Nokia Lumia 900. It was formerly launched as an LTE device which runs on US’s AT&T network. As speculated and accidentally teased, Nokia has announced a Nokia Lumia 900 for the rest of the world.
What’s interesting with this version is that it supports DC-HSPA with download speeds up to 42Mbps. At the moment, U Mobile is the the only telco here that is commercially offering DC-HSPA connectivity with downloads up to 42Mbps. In terms of specs, it is expected to be similar as the LTE version with a 4.3″ ClearBlack AMOLED display and 1.4GHz processor. It will be available in white, cyan and black.
The Lumia 900 DC-HSPA variant is priced at €480 (about RM1,945) and it is expected to go on sale on Q2 2012 as well.
