Nokia has announced a new and the most affordable Windows Phone 7.5 smartphone in their Lumia series — the Lumia 510. Targeted at the developing markets like India, China, Asia-Pacific countries and South America, the device is strategically priced at around US $199 to be able to take the Windows Phone to masses. The Lumia 510 features a 4-inch touchscreen display, but other internal specs have been reduced.
The Nokia Lumia 510’s 4-inch screen is a capactitive WVGA (800×480) display. The device is powered by an 800MHz Snapdragon S1 processor, 256MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and a 1300mAh battery. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, 2G, 3G and Micro-USB 2.0. There’s a 5-megapixel camera at the rear. However, it misses a front camera as well as a Micro-SD card slot. In lieu of this, you get 7GB of Microsoft SkyDrive cloud storage.
These specs might look miniscule when compared to other smartphones, but Windows Phone 7.5 is designed to run well on lower specs.
