Hands on with the Nokia Lumia 610 [Video]

Nokia Lumia 610

We just got our grubby, tired hands on the Lumia 610. Truth be told, the 610 is a gorgeous phone that feels great in the hand. With "only" a 1GHz 800 MHz CPU, 256MB of RAM and 8GB of storage, the "low end" device sure retains that Nokia quality.

The phone is expected in Q2 for emerging and developing markets.

No specific OS version in that about screen it seems, now we can't tell what it's running exactly at this point in time.  Also any new tango stuff hidden in there somewhere??

So they dropped:
 
CPU speed 1GHz -> 800 MHz
Memepory 512 Mb -> 256 Mb
Screen technology - No Clear black screen
 
Still for the price its a really decent device. And look att that flow on the screen. Even WP7 low end devices have the same buttery feeling. Try to find that on a low-end Android device. (By the way did you guys notice the stutter and touch lag on the new Asha devivces from Nokia? Horrible!)

I kept on asking the Fandriod people what they needed a quad core phone for
and till this day I am yet to get a convincing answer...:)
 

Cool!  I hope they can price it at $199 (or less) without contract, that'll make it an attractive handset for sure.  Very smart on Nokia's part to explicitly aim this at the "younger" market segment, an attractive market segment for Apple's iPod Touch. 

On top of that, I don't think even Lumia 610 is any less well positioned to succeed (bar carrier issues, pre-existing biases, etc) than say iPhone 3GS in the entry-level segment.  Still though, I think the inclusion of FFC across the board might well have been a potent addition (on top of solid WP7 performance and features, Nokia's build quality and extras), but there's next-year right?

Still, can't go wrong with Nokia Drive (2.0), Maps, Reading Hub, Transport, ESPN and CNN (albeit temporary).  A lot of attractive apps there already worth $40-50 coming with the handset, and add the deal with EA for games, good bost to the gaming portfolio.
 

This looks good!
 
Nokia, Microsoft - here's a hint if you go the US route (post-paid carriers!)
You're welcome

I read Skydrive is disabled to manual instead of automatic. For example, pictures you take can be uploaded automatically to your Skydrive account. Not possible with devices on the low end, but you can manually upload them. Just not automatic.
Low end devices will also lack Bing Local Scout support due low memory to support background process.

 i don't mind having to sync photo / files manually as long as its there no problem i'll be getting this as gift
thank you a lot :)
