      • Momoo

        i think it shouldn’t be more than 10K -11K as Qmobile A2 is in market with 1 GHz processor and 512 MB Ram and that is i think very affordable @ Rs. 8900/-

        so Nokia is not ;market leader i think they need to restructure their marketing strategy as people are getting better china made mobiles with Android OS.

      We can’t even explore MAPS on a Windows Phone in Pakistan. Further more, there are less applications and developers as compared to Android. In my opinion these devices currently have no scope in PAKISTANI market.

      • WP main konsay maps hain? bing maps? oh han wo to Pakistan kay liyay kuch bhi nahi hain

    • I bought 5 Nokia 610 from UK about month ago for £60 or 9000Rs and brought here in pakistan. why mobiles are way over priced here? bloody mafia everywhere in pak,

      I am a big Fan of Android phones but these lumia series windows phone are good. May be I will switch back to Nokia after a long time….

    • Rabia Khan

      Its seems useless to spend 20k on low ram phone with OS 7.5 (un-upgradeable), while Win 8 is going to change the whole scene of Windows Phones World soon.

      • Zee

        WHAT?!! Windows Phone OS is not upgradable??

        • MobileDev

          Yes man, and no body knows how long windows phone 8 will go, if
          Microsoft announced another ecosystem next year lol, that’s why windows
          phone era is a failure.

        • Rabia Khan

          Yes. 7.5 cant be upgrade to amazing 8.

      • Ehtesham Shahzad

        You are right that it will not get windows phone 8. But at least it is getting windows phone 7.8
        If you really want a good windows phone 7.5 phone then get the Lumia 710. It is better.

    • Waqas

    • features are not worth of 20,000

    • Momoo

      20 K for 800 Mhz processor and 256 MB Ram

      let me laugh on it.
      only good thing is win 7.5 OS, so whats the big deal, windows mobile have not yet achieve so much fame that we die for it against Andriod OS.

      Xperia
      U VS Lumia 610

      Weight: 110 g VS 131.5 g

      RAM: 512 MB VS 256 MB

      Secondary Camera: Yes VS No

      CPU: Dual-core
      1 GHz Cortex-A9 VS 800 MHz ARM Cortex-A5

      Flash: Yes VS No

      Jave: Yes VS No

      Just Lumia have more battery timing but Sony is claiming
      that with ICS update battery timing will significantly improve.
