The Nokia Lumia 610 has been the entry-level Windows Phone 7.5 for some time and with the arrival of the Windows Phone 7.8 update it’s come in for a new lease of life. If you’re tempted to get your hands on this small form-factor smartphone then check out our guide to the best Nokia Lumia 610 price deals February 2013.
The Nokia Lumia 610 is classed as the entry-level smartphone of the Lumia Windows Phone 7.5 range but one glance will dismiss any misgivings you may have about it being cheap! It has a look and feel all its own and Nokia has differentiated it from its more expensive brothers, the Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 900, for example, by making it available with a range of back covers, so you can swap and change to best suit your mood.
The 3.7-inch touchscreen display is the same size as the more expensive Nokia Lumia 800, so Nokia isn’t cutting down on usability on its budget model. True, you won’t find the AMOLED screen or ClearBlack coating of the Lumia 800 in place but they do share the standard 800 x 480-pixel resolution of all current Windows Phone devices.
We’ve noticed the Nokia Lumia 610 deals are starting to dry up, as vendors are switching to Windows Phone 8, so if you’re looking for a real bargain now may well your last chance to get your hands on this smartphone.
We’ve updated our Nokia Lumia 610 price guide to reflect this and prices are correct at time of writing.
