Hands-on: Nokia Lumia 610 at MWC 2012 [Video]

610featured

The latest member of Nokia’s family of Windows Phone devices, Lumia 610, is catered toward first-time smartphone buyers, offering quite a bang for the buck. Like previous Lumia models, it too is available in several colors, including white, cyan, magenta and black.

On the front of the phone, there’s a 3.7-inch screen, along with standard Windows keys. On the side, you’ll find volume up/down and camera buttons; while the top is reserved for microUSB port and a 3.5mm headset jack. Finally, there’s a 5-megapixel camera with flash and speaker on the back.

Inside, the Lumia 610 hides Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S1 CPU clocking at 800MHz and a 7.2Mbps HSDPA radio.

The phone itself is made out of hard plastic with a metallic bezel on the front of the device. As such (and given the fact it will be available in familiar Nokia colors), it’s similar to other Nokia Windows Phone devices, and yes it’s getting hard to differentiate between all of ‘em.

Overall, Nokia may have a hit phone at its hands, the one that will further strengthen its position as the leading maker of Windows Phones. I can easily imagine carriers all around the world offering the Lumia 610 for free on contracts starting at about $20 a month. Off contract, Nokia says the Lumia 610 will be available for 189 EUR, which translates into about $253.

We’ll see whether such a low-end Windows Phone device will help Microsoft get a more significant market share and in the meantime, here are the Lumia 610 photos we prepared:

    I hope that Nokia does bring the 610 to the states because the smaller USA carriers could sell it cheap.  This Windows 7 series smart phone can operate 95% of the Apps that the windows phone 7.5 mango smart phones can operate.  This would be a good first smart phone to give to a teenager or an adult who wants to break away from a  regular cell who does not want to spend an arm and a leg to get a high end smartphone

    Why is the Search button in wp locked to their own search engine. This means that if ms would have a monopoly on the mobileside, are locked into their own search engine. I think this is totally anti-competitive. It is also entirely undemocratic when MS thanonce an attempt to force upon us their products. Open up MS now! Do not be evil.
