Nokia has announced the launch of Lumia 510 in India. It is the latest addition to the Lumia series from Nokia. The price and launch date of the phone are still not disclosed. However, Nokia has stated that the price of the phone will be below Rs.11,000. Nokia decided to launch this model due to the great success of Lumia 610. This is basically a low-budget Windows phone from Nokia.
Talking about its appearance, it's a trendy mobile with vibrant colors. It will be available in 5 colors namely, white, cyan, red, black and yellow.
Nokia Lumia 510 is an entry level windows phone. It will be running on Windows 7.5. Moving towards the specs, Lumia 510 sports a 4 inch WVGA capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 800 X 480 pixels. There is a 5 megapixel primary camera that records videos in VGA mode at 30 fps. Other camera features include autofocus, geotagging and face detection. The camera can click pictures of resolution 2592 X 1944 pixels.
The phone supports both 2G and 3G networks. Talking about the data usage, it provides upto 85.6 Kbps for GPRS, 236.8 Kbps for EDGE and 10.2 Mbps for 3G network.
The phone's internal memory is merely 4 GB that cannot be expanded as there is no external microSD card slot. However, being a Windows phone, Lumia 510 gives 7 GB free cloud storage to its users on Skydrive. This may fulfill the memory needs of Lumia 510 users to some extent. The phone has merely 256 MB of RAM and 800 MHz processor which is quite disappointing as Android phones offer 1 GHz processor at lesser price.
