The Nokia Lumia 610 is another addition to the Lumia range. It is a lower spec than previous model, using a S1 processor clocked at 800mhz and it has 256mb of ram. It is really targetted at first time users of smartphones. The Lumia 610 was shown off at MWC earlier in the year and Nokia kept mentioning the NFC capabilies of the device. Clove make no mention of this, so whether it has been dropped or not remains to be seen.
Update – Clove have got in touch. This model does not have NFC. The NFC model are out later this year. Presumably when Windows Phone supports it. Nokia have added a video on their YouTube channel about the 610. Here it is.
If you want a cheap Windows Phone you are really torn at the moment. You can choose from this or the Lumia 710 or even the discounted HTC Radar. Lots of choice at the entry level.
Clove now have the 610 in Black in stock with the Cyan one to follow shortly. Both at £180 inc vat. More details here.
Handtec also have the 610 in Black in stock as well for £175.19 inc vat. More details here.
