Lumia 510 was announced in India last week as a Diwali gift from Nokia to India. Lumia 510 is Lumia 610′s taller but younger brother. 510 has a 4 inch display and 4 GB memory (plus 7 GB free on skydrive) and that’s the only thing which separates it from Lumia 610. Last week, Nokia stated that 510 will be priced below 11,000 Rupees and I wanted them to price it below 10,000 and lo and behold – Flipkart is now listing Lumia 510 for immediate purchase at 9,999 Rupees.
I recently received Lumia 610 review unit from Nokia. At first, I wasn’t too sure if the processor could handle it but I can tell you it’s been mostly a lag free experience but not as smooth as I’d like. Some applications also refuse to work but that’s a small number (yet some are important apps) that you’d be missing out on so do make sure that you keep this in mind when you purchase 510 as they have the same processor. For the first time, Nokia India has priced a Lumia device right and not only that, they have launched it right before Diwali and this could be a huge boost in sales for them. Also, with Lumia WP7 filled with Diwali offers and price cuts and most importantly, with Lumia WP8 family arriving this month – this is Nokia’s most important month in a long long time.
