We’ve got the Nokia Lumia 900, the Lumia 800 and the Nokia Lumia 710; the first two being top of the line handsets and the third one being a more affordable mid-range phone. Now, there are chances that Nokia Lumia 610 and Nokia 305 may already be in the making and are almost in the finishing stages. Postel, Indonesia’s FCC section has posted information on these two previously unheard phones, the Lumia 610 and the Nokia 305, as reported by GSMArena. In their database, they’ve included some basic information on the phones and though it barely gives us any detailed specs, here’s what has been disclosed. In terms of connectivity, the 610 will have 2G and 3G enabled, along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, whilst the other model, the Asha 305, doesn’t even have those specs listed. So, it’s not even the bare minimum. However, there are big chances that Nokia will be launching a few more phones to give customers some extra dough to play around with, besides the existing handsets. The Nokia Lumia 610 is high on the confirmation list and we might just see it unveiled at Barcelona at MWC, that’s coming up a few days from now.
However, we’ve already got a few clues from here and there, so let’s try joining the mini jigsaw puzzle we have got in our hands. It’s important to note that the 610 goes back on the numerical scale from the Lumia 710, the Lumia 800 and the 900. That’s one important aspect because, and we repeat this again, the Lumia 710 is a mid range handset and the 800 and 900 are top of the line ones. The 610 can easily fit into the low-end budget, thus making Nokia have one competing smartphone at three various price ranges.
Second, we know about the existence of Tango, and how it most certainly is going to bring fragmentation to Windows Phone 7 with lower RAM requirements and other spec changes that we saw in the article here. Last, but not the least, we've got some 'leaked' images of the phone, courtesy Nok4us.Mix all this together and you’ve got a shiny new Nokia Lumia 610 that's running with reduced specs and is targeted towards the lower end of the market.
One leaked picture. Two important clues. Three minutes of out of the box thinking. Jigsaw puzzle complete.
