Nokia prepares Lumia 510 for emerging markets


Nokia has decided to bring its Lumia line to emerging markets starting with a new budget-friendly phone – the Lumia 510, which will go on sale in China by the end of 2012 and will hit other markets around the world in early 2013.

Being a budget smartphone the Lumia 510 is definitely not a powerhouse – it offers just 256 MB of RAM, a Qualcomm processor at 800 MHz and 4 GB of internal storage that might be expanded via a microSD card slot. The Lumia 510 will also offer a 4-inch display and a 5 MP rear camera without a flash.

The Lumia 510 will have other limitations too – the phone will support GSM, CDMA and HSPA networks only with no LTE support. In addition Nokia loads the phone with Windows Phone 7.8 – and the Lumia 510 is very unlikely to ever see an upgrade to Windows Phone 8.

Even with these limitations the Lumia remains an attractive piece. It will cost just 150 USD without a contract – which means that many people around the globe will own their first smartphone soon enough.
