Nokia Corp.on Monday introduced the world's first Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 "Mango" smartphone that only costs €189 ($255). The Lumia 610 sports 8GB of NAND flash memory, single-core microprocessor and 3.7" screen with relatively low resolution.

Nokia Lumia 610 is based on Qualcomm MSM8255T 800MHz system-on-chip with one ARM Cortex-A8 core, Adreno 205 graphics processor with hardware acceleration for high-definition video playback, 256MB dual-channel LPDDR2 memory controller as well as GSM (GPRS, EDGE) W-CDMA/UMTS (HSDPA, HSUPA, HSPA+)support. The phone is equipped with with Bluetooth 2.1, 802.11b/g/n, G-sensor, digital compass, A-GPS, 5MP camera, micro-USB, 3.5mm audio jack, 3-axis accelerometer and so on. Lumia 610 has 3.7" capacitive LCD multi-touch screen with 800*480 resolution.

Nokia Lumia smartphones based on Microsoft Windows 7.5 "Mango" operating system also include "signature Nokia experiences" optimized for Windows Phone, including Available with Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive, Nokia Reading, Nokia Transport and Nokia Music.

Microsoft and Nokia clearly need Lumia 610 smartphone as it should prove success (or the lack of it) of the Windows Phone platform in the entry-level segment. Nokia hopes that Lumia 610 will appeal to younger audience thanks to high integration of communication technologies along with affordable cost. Unfortunately, the Lumia 610 already looks outdated with single-core ARM Cortex-A8 800MHz, 3.7" screen with 800*480 resolution as well as just 256MB of RAM.

Separately, Nokia has also unveiled high-end Lumia 900 worldwide edition that also supports DC-HSPA variant, for high speed data connection (42Mb/s download) in countries where LTE is not available. The Nokia Lumia 900 features a 4.3" ClearBlack AMOLED display, exclusive Carl Zeiss optics and other advantages. The Nokia Lumia 900 will be available in white, cyan and black, is priced at €480 ($645) and also expected to begin shipping in the second quarter of 2012.

800*480 is not a relatively low resolution

it is the only resolution WP7/7.5 supports, Apollo should support some more

on topic

it looks like a great phone

certainly on my buy list once it comes out here

The 710 would be a much better buy and you won't have to sacrifice anything because of the 256mb of RAM.

This phone should make WP7 more affordable in certain countries however, which should bring this intuitive and fun to use mobile OS to the masses.

Looks fine to me, most ppl want a phone to use as a phone, not everyone wants/needs some of the high powered features found on high end smart phones
