Nokia announces Lumia 610, an entry level windows phone

Nokia Lumia 610

Nokia Lumia 610Since Nokia made the shift from Symbian to Windows, there has been a downfall of value in the company, mainly due to that. The shift. Nokia bit the sword and decided to gamble with Windows as their main platform, mush to the hails and criticsm of the onlookers and stakeholders. The bet has come of age. Lumia has had plenty of good reviews, and the three previous Lumias, Lumia 800, Lumia 710 and Lumia 900 are great devices. The windows platform is, the apps are the problem.

Nokia Launched Lumia on a high end note, that’s the Lumia 800, then later the Lumia 710, a much lower specs device. Lumia 710 also made a turn, providing a Lumia that had a battery that one could switch. Nokia later launched Lumia 900 specifically for the US market. Lumia 900 has been launched at Mobile World Congress for the rest of the markets. Nokia Lumia 610 also made its debut on the same press conference earlier today st Barcelona. Must have been the smartphone whose images were the first to ever leak of Lumia.

This one is an entry level device and is the cheapest of ther Lumias. Low in specs and cost, but providing a snazzy smartphone feel for the budget aware customer who needs the Windows feel.Priced at EUR 185 or $248 (Kshs 20,000), Lumia 610 is quite a bargain. Nokia has spent huge sums marketing the Lumia and I wouldnt be surprised if this piece sold like hot cake globally.
Lumia 610 is a 3.7 inch WVGA(800×480)TFT smartphone with capacitive touch and pinch to zoom. Its powered by Windows 7.5 and has a 256MB RAM, 8GB Storage, a 5MP Autofocus Camera with LED Flash.This gives video recorf=ding of VGA @30fps.
