Nokia has made Windows Phone 8 the basis for its midrange and high-end smartphone endeavors and focused on Asha for its entry-level, but the Finnish manufacturer has decided to also introduce another entry-level Windows Phone. Nokia today announced the upcoming availability of the Nokia Lumia 510, a Windows Phone 7.5 handset that comes in a variety of bright colors.
The Nokia Lumia 510 has a 4-inch touchscreen with a WVGA (800x480) resolution. The phone has a Snapdragon S1 800 MHz processor, 256MB RAM, and 4GB of internal storage without any microSD slot. It also includes a 5 megapixel camera and a 1,300 mAh battery to manage all services. Those are paltry specifications based on what's found in most smartphones today, but Nokia designed the 510 to be low-cost and suitable for entry-level smartphone buyers in developing markets.
Potential Lumia 510 buyers will be able to purchase the phone at the full retail price of $199 when it goes on sale in November. The phone will first be available in China and India, and then will go on sale in select countries in the Asia-Pacific region and South America. The Lumia 510 will be available in black, cyan, red, white, and yellow.source: Nokia
