  1. So the Lumia 610 has the same specifications as Lumia 710 except for the slower processor and lesser RAM. With the WP 7.5 OS further optimised by Microsoft to run on slower processors and their new paging system enabling devices to allocate more memory than physically present, it seems the phone will be able to provide genuine, fast and relaible Windows Phone experience.

    I’m particularly happy they haven’t reduced the size of the screen, because in my opinion, anything smaller than 3.6/3.7 inches is really unsuitable for modern smartphone experience. Moreover, with the processor chugging along at 800 MHz, the 1300 mAH battery should give more bang for the buck. 8GB on board memory and 5 MP camera are also almost industry par minimum requirements and they’ve done well to stick to them.

    All in all, the Lumia 610 is more than what we expected Microsoft-Nokia to pull off. I think you have a win win situation here.

      1. tango low end devices limitation is  you could run 95% of the apps available in the marketplace due to 256M memory thats the only limitation except of the hardware if you want better hardware then you need better device
