Nokia today unveiled a new budget oriented Windows Phone 7.5 running handset especially meant to cater towards the budget segment of the Indian market – the Lumia 510.
The Lumia 510 sports a 4-inch TFT screen with WVGA (800×480) resolution, a 800MHz Snapdragon S1 processor, 256MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a 5MP camera at the back, along with all the usual connectivity features except for the lack of 3G and a microSD card slot. Nokia does provide 7GB of free storage space on SkyDrive to make up for the lack of space on the handset.
Keeping in mind the Indian market, Nokia will be launching the handset in five trendy colors including red, yellow, cyan, white and black.
On the software side, the Lumia 510 runs on Windows Phone 7.5 but will get the Windows Phone 7.8 update, whenever it is available. It will also come pre-loaded with Nokia’s own navigation services and apps – Nokia Maps, Drive and Transport.
The Lumia 510 will hit the retail stores in the beginning of November in India and China and will cost $199 (sub-Rs 11,000 in India) before taxes and subsidies.
