The Nokia Lumia 610 was a nice little budget Windows Phone running the ‘Tango’ version of the platform and the Nokia Lumia 51o has been no stranger. After seeing initial details, sightings and camera samples, Microsoft strategic partner Nokia today officially announced the phone as its “most affordable” Lumia model yet, a slight Lumia 610 downgrade.
Colors are present, like on the rest of the Lumia line-up: red, yellow, cyan, white and black. Under the pigmented plastic there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor clocking at 800MHz, four-inch WVGA screen, 256MB of RAM (bummer for some apps like Skype), 4GB of internal storage, and a five-megapixel main camera
, and a VGA front facer. Offerings like Nokia’s own Maps, Drive and Transport are available on the device, running on Windows Phone 7.5 (our guess is Tango, since the 610 ran that out of the box).
The price is around $199 outright and will be available starting November in markets like India, China, South America and Asia.
