Nokia Announces Lumia 900, Budget Lumia 610 Windows Phone
The budget-friendly Lumia 610 has been rumored for quite some time, and finally, Nokia has made the new Windows Phone 7.5 device official. It has a 3.7″ WVGA screen, 256MB RAM, and 8GB of storage space. The battery is a bit small at 1,300 mAh, though with a smaller screen, it should provide enough juice (in this case, 6.5 hours of talk time). Look for the Lumia 610 in Q2 for around $250 in blue, white, pink, and black.
Nokia also announced the availability of their flagship Lumia 900 as a world phone with DC-HSPA+ for twice the speed of HSPA+. Beyond data, the specs are the same: Windows Phone 7.5, a 4.3″ WVGA ClearBlack AMOLED, 512MB of RAM, and 16GB of ROM. Look for the Lumia 900 to ship in Europe for around $650 in Q2, which means that the AT&T Lumia 900 will be shipping first.
