Nokia has a new Windows Phone 7.5 handset in their Lumia 510. This device is said to be a bridge between its Symbian phones which are popular in emerging countries and true Windows Phone handsets which is what the company is moving towards.
In terms of its niche within the market, the Lumia 510 would fit in somewhere somewhere beside the Lumia 610. There is no indication yet as to what the processor speed is that powers this handset, but we do know that the Lumia 510 does come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. In addition to this, other features that can be found on the handset include 256MB RAM, a 4-inch touchscreen display and a 5MP camera. Storage on the handset is addressed by 4GB of internal storage and although Nokia has not included an option to expand this storage through the inclusion of a memory card slot, all buyers of this phone will be entitled to 7GB of additional free space through SkyDrive which is Microsoft’s cloud storage solution.
The Nokia Windows phone is expected to debut next month and when it does, it will be priced at $199. According to Nokia’s Executive Vice President of Smart Devices, Jo Harlow, price was an important consideration for this device as the objective was to introduce more people to the Windows mobile OS.
