    Nokia Lumia 610 announced with 800MHz processor, 256MB RAM, Windows Phone 7.5

    [​IMG]

    Nokia is announcing its latest Lumia device at Mobile World Congress 2012 today. The Nokia Lumia 610 is designed to be a low-end affordable Lumia Windows Phone, priced at just 189 euros. With a focus on China, the Lumia 610 introduces a new price point and markets for Microsoft's mobile operating system. The Lumia 610 includes an 800MHz processor, 256MB of RAM, and a 5-megapixel camera — pushing Microsoft's Windows Phone specifications to the lowest point in the platforms short history.

    Nokia describes the Lumia 610 as "hugely important" for both itself and Microsoft in terms of scale and reach. Although features like Bing Local Scout and automatic SkyDrive uploads will not be available, due to a limit on the amount of background data exchange, Lumia 610 owners can activate some of them manually. Nokia's latest Lumia will run an updated version of Windows Phone 7.5, codenamed Tango, that we had heard a number of rumors about previously. Nokia refuses to disclose whether it will pay a lower royalty fee for this lighter version of Windows Phone, but it does tell us that the Lumia 610 will be released in Q2 2012.

    Nokia Lumia 610 pictures, video, and hands-on preview

    MWC 2012 isn't quite Nokia World, but the Finnish company has kept interest going with a number of important announcements. Chief among them, in terms of Nokia's long-term strategy, is the Lumia 610. This device drops the entry-level price for the Lumia range down to 189 euros before taxes and subsidies, which is precisely 70 percent of the launch price of the Lumia 710, Nokia's previous cheapest Windows Phone.

    An upcoming update to the Windows Phone OS is what will make the 610 possible: a lighter version of the software will be capable of running on only 256MB of RAM and support slower processors than the 1GHz Snapdragon that has so far been standard issue on WP hardware. The Lumia 610 limits itself to that quarter of a gigabyte of memory and also makes do with an 800MHz processing chip. In practice, that seems to be showing no negative impact on interface responsiveness, though we did only have a quick browse around the live tile menu and apps list. A deeper investigation could reveal where corners have had to be cut, but for now Microsoft seems to have successfully reengineered its OS for more humble devices. Nokia describes this change as the first time its influence has been felt in the development of Windows Phone.

    Physically, the Lumia 610 is a glossy affair, with a two-tone finish, which isn't striking me as particularly attractive, but Nokia believes the masses of "aspirational" Windows Phone buyers will appreciate an extra bit of sheen. There'll be four colors to choose from when the 610 launches in Q2 2012. Unfortunately, the back cover is sealed and there's no user access for replacing the battery or just taking a curious look inside the device. Still, the Lumia 610 feels comfortable in the hand and easy to operate — when you consider its price and aim, perhaps some of these issues can be forgiven.

    It's amazing
    Nokia 808 PureView with 41-megapixel photo snapper.
    Here's what they said about it
    “At standard resolutions (2/3, 5 and 8 megapixels) this means the ability to zoom without loss of clarity and capture seven pixels of information, condensing into one pixel for the sharpest images imaginable,” the leading handset vendor explains.

    “At high-resolution (38 megapixel maximum) it means the ability to capture an image, then zoom, reframe, crop and resize afterwards to expose previously unseen levels of details. "

    Not only does the Nokia 808 PureView sport great imaging capabilities, but it also features full HD 1080p video recording and playback. Additionally, the new device was packed with 4X lossless zoom and with Nokia Rich Recording – it is the first device in the world to include it.

    The new Nokia 808 PureView mobile phone will arrive on shelves sometime in May with a price tag of 450 Euros attached to it ($600)

    Samsung Announces Galaxy S WiFi 4.2, For The Android Lovers Who Don't Need a phone

    Android typically makes its bread and butter on phones, with a side order of tablets. Palm-sized media players aren't usually on the menu, save for Samsung's own offerings. Today, the company announced a refresh for its handheld phone-less device. The notPod may not be the most in-demand category of devices, but if Samsung's taught us anything this week, it's that the company isn't one to turn down a niche market.... more
