Nokia Lumia 610 getting new software update to make it better, faster

Lumia 610

"We can update him...we have the technology."

With all the hype centered on the next-generation of Windows Phones, let us not forget that there are large percentages of people who are still on older hardware and plan to stay there.

The Lumia 610, arguably one of the most low-cost Windows Phone on the market that also maintains a premium feel to it, is slated to get an update in the coming weeks. (No, it's not Windows Phone 7.8.)

Specifics are lacking on the update but we do know that it will deliver “improved system performance, camera performance, and usability”. That sounds mighty fine to our ears and we’ll keep a lookout for when that update starts to roll out.

My wife got her lumia 610 just a few days ago.
Its really all about keeping in contact. And this device really hits the bargain I myself have the lumia 800 and yes its way better. But the 610 really does the job for her.
There is no better smartphone for €150.

iThunderbirt says:

That's good news! This will keep me occupied a bit until the Lumia 920 :D

chuey101 says:

but what about harder and stronger?

dermotf says:

I got the 610 for my wife (replaced a crappy slow LG Android) and it is a great phone for $150. It does everything she needs and more and it has a very high quality feel.

addman says:

Bought a 610 last week, for 144€ it was a steal! For an entry-level WP handset it's pretty awesome for that price. I'll give it to my gf as soon as the WP8 phones will show up ;). Great to see the continued support from Nokia, few manufacturers does such support for their hardware as Nokia. Hyvää Suomi!

hoovermac says:

Just picked up a 610 in the past couple of weeks.   Impressive to see this kind of support from Nokia.  Most folks I show the device to are quite impressed with the performance, and it's going to improve!  Nice!!  Will keep me going until the WP8's arrive.

Pricop says:

But will it get 7.8 ? I've read that 510 will get it, so I can't find any reason why 610 wouldn't.

ExcaliburII says:

not really related, but got a firmware update for my 900 today...bumped the firmware up from 12222 to 12224.  Or it could be because I haven't plugged into my computer for some time this came much earlier.

I downloaded that firmware update to my phone via Zune, almost 2 weeks ago. Don't know exactly what changes it made though.

Nice, my lumia 610 is smiling........ :)
