Nokia today took the wraps off the budget Nokia Lumia 610 handset, alongside a UK-bound version of the Nokia Lumia 900.
The Lumia 610 features the latest version of Windows Phone software, although thanks to lessening of Mango’s hardware requirements, packs an 800MHz CPU and 256MB RAM. Still, this mid-range innards come paired with a decent 3.7-inch 480 x 800 touchscreen and housed within a stylish 11.95mm thick chassis.
The handset, which is expected to retail for around £150, also features a 5MP camera, HSDPA connectivity, 8GB of internal storage and a 1300 mAh battery.
The Finnish smartphone maker also confirmed that the Nokia Lumia 900 – previously an AT&T exclusive – will also be seeing a release here in Blighty. This high-end smartphone features a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED screen, a 1.4Ghz processor and an 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and HD video. There’s also a front-facing webcam, 16GB included storage and HSDPA and WiFi connectivity.
The Nokia Lumia 900, unlike its budget brother, is already available to pre-order for £454.98 SIM free, ahead of its release on May 23.
