Windows-Powered Nokia Lumia 510 Handset Emerges

According to a leaked screenshot, Nokia is expected to launch a new Windows Phone smartphone, the Lumia 510.

It's expected to replace the Lumia 610, with the device reportedly featuring a four-inch display, a possible resolution of 800 x 480 and 4GB internal memory. However, the handset apparently carries only 256MB of RAM, which rules out the possibility of it being a Windows Phone 8 device, thus most likely featuring the Windows Phone 7.8 operating system.

The initial price is said to be $150 for the Lumia 510, with a launch likely in China. It's expected that the phone will be available in Chinese markets in time for the holidays, while a global release is expected next year.

Nokia released the Lumia range last year and has an accumulative of six handsets in its portfolio, with several devices available for budget prices.

    I don't dislike the 510, but I don't really see much market for it, those who want a smartphone can get a 1-year or 2-year contract and get a more powerful phone. And those who just want a low-price phone will just stick with an old school Nokia or a generic one.

    It is most propably sold without contracts! So sheap windows phone can have customers. Win 7.5 works very well with not so fast hardware, and if they can allso keep the power usage in good shape, this can sell a lot. But hard to say before tests comes out.

    It's not aimed at North American and European markets, it's aimed at emerging Indian and Chinese markets.
