Nokia Unveils Lumia 510, the Most Inexpensive Windows Phone


Continuing the LUMIA family, Nokia has now added Lumia 510 – the most inexpensive windows phone – in its smart phone series.

Aimed at emerging marketing markets, the Lumia 510 weighs 129 grams and has a 4-inch WVGA TFT capacitive touch screen that is slightly greater than Lumia 610 screen of 3.7 inches.

It is embedded with 5 Mega Pixel autofocus camera with VGA recording. In depth, this camera carries f/2.4 aperture with wide angle 28mm focal length.

Nokia has packed this new phone with Snapdragon S1 processor having 256 MB of RAM. The internal storage is limited to 4GB due to absence of microSD cards or any other kind of expandable storage. But for sure, it carries 7 GB free SkyDrive storage along with GPS-navigation apps, Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive.

Connectivity options for this device include 2G and 3G with HSDPA, Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1 without having NFC.

Currently, at launch, it will run Windows Phone 7.5 and will be updated to 7.8 but will not be upgradable to Windows phone 8.

So far, there is no exact price revealed but it would be around 200 USD. This Lumia 510 is expected to be available first in China and India in November and then will move in other countries.

Seeing its specifications and lower price tag, it will be posed as strong competitor to other android smart phones as well as its sibling device “the Nokia Lumia 610”.
