Introducing the Nokia Lumia 610 Windows Phone

17

It's official now. Nokia has introduced the company's fourth Lumia Windows Phone, the Lumia 610. The Lumia 610 will be Nokia's most affordable Windows Phone targeted to our younger audience.

The 610 will sport a 3.7" LCD display, 256mb RAM, 8GB of storage, and a 5mp rear camera. It will be available in white, cyan, magenta, and black. The Lumia 610 measures 119 x 62 x 12mm and weighs in at 131.5 grams.  It is also slated to run Windows Phone Mango.  Expect the Lumia 610 to hit markets sometime during the second quarter of 2012 at a pricing point of 189 Euros.

Oh..Nokia already has the Lumia 610's product page up and you can find it here at Nokia Europe.

Nokia Pure View 41MP camera sensor announced, Windows Phone in the future

14

Nokia just blew our minds with the Pure View announcement. A Symbian powered device, the 808 features an astonishing 41MP sensor allowing photos to be taken in 5MP, 8MP and 38MP variants.

Photos can also be saved in special formats to allow easy sharing over social networks, email, etc. which will be important due to their potential size. The 808 is expected in May for an estimated 450 Euros.

Of course the big news is Nokia obviously plans to eventually bring this kind of tech our way to Windows Phone. But the OS will need to support that and we bet it won't happen till Apollo this Fall. But you can bet that will be a killer Windows Phone. Kudos to Nokia for the technological leap here.

Nokia Lumia 900 to go global

Nokia Lumia 900 to go global

While the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone will launch in a few weeks in the U.S. on AT&T, shortly thereafter the 900 will hit global markets.  The International Lumia will not bear the "910" designation that was rumored earlier.  It will remain the Lumia 900 but an international model supporting dhcpa instead of the hspa+/LTE bands the AT&T version will handle.

The Lumia 900 will first hit Rogers of Canada in April and spread globally from there. Look for the Lumia 900 to hit European markets sometime in the second quarter.  While there wasn't a pricing point mentioned for the Rogers's release of the Lumia 900, look for the European release to run about 480 Euros.

It would appear that Nokia is still hitting on all cylinders with its partnership with Microsoft and Windows Phones. With the global release of the Lumia 900 and the pending release of the Lumia 610, Nokia will offer a full range of Windows Phones globally. Not too shabby.

HTC plans for Apollo and the Titan II

44

It looks like HTC is firmly on board with Windows Phone Apollo with plans to launch new devices when the Apollo update hits later this year.

Kouji Kodera, HTC's Chief Product Officer stated,

"For Windows Phone we haven't decided on the branding yet, but you will see a new range of Windows Phones from us when Microsoft release their new Apollo operating system."

Kodera also confirmed that the HTC Titan II, that is due on the AT&T network in March, will eventually find its way outside the U.S. Market. He didn't get too specific on where the Titan II would land or when but did note that Australia would be getting the 4.7" screened Windows Phone.

Mobile World Congress Day 0: No new Windows Phones from LG, Huawei, Sony or HTC

36

We wrapping up what has turned out to be a somewhat busy day here in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress--well, for Android at least. And even though tomorrow it technically kicks off, lots of companies had their press events today with new device announcements. Surprisingly (or perhaps not), there were no new Windows Phones to be shown or announced. This comes by way of three companies:

  • LG - They had a lot to discuss including eight new Android devices but no love for Windows Phone
  • Huawei - They announced three new phones all Android and tentatively a new Android tablet lending credence to the rumors that Huawei are out of Windows Phone even before they were ever really in
  • HTC - Likewise, Windows Phone supporter HTC announced three new devices today but there was not a single Windows Phone amongst them. That despite many of us expecting an "international" Titan II
  • Sony - And though we weren't really expecting anything from them, some other sites were and we're remiss to say that no, they had nothing but Android news as well. No dramatic shifts in allegiances there, folks.

All in all there was little good news happening here but we have Nokia in just a few hours as well as ZTE for device announcements today--hopefully things will pick up a bit.

More Lumia 610 photos prior to MWC Windows Phone announcements

34

PocketNow has published more images of the upcoming budget Windows Phone, the Lumia 610. The colour variations fit in with the colour selection process for the Lumia family of Nokia handsets, which was recently explained. Rumours are flying left, right and centre, but the specifications for the low-end device are set to sport a 3.2" display, 3/5MP camera, and 256MB RAM.

The 610 is rumoured to be available in magenta, cyan, black and white. We'll be sure to keep a watchful eye out for any lying around at MWC to get some hands-on action.

Lumia 610 rumored to have a 3.2" screen, ultra low cost

38

Seems almost silly posting supposed renders of a phone that will be announced in less than 24 hours here at Mobile World Congress, but lets get on with it.

The latest stems around the Lumia 610, a low-end phone for emerging markets e.g. India which is expected to help push Nokia (and Windows Phone) deep into areas where Apple and even Android have trouble due to rising costs. The 610, according to BGR will have:

  • 3.2" screen
  • 3MP camera
  • Cost Rs 11,000 (Euro 175)
  • 256MB of RAM

Going further that image above is reportedly what it looks like. To which we all say "sure, why not?". Nokia is certainly capable of making this phone and "610" screams budget phone as the higher the numbers go, the more high end they are and vice versa for Nokia. All we can say is lets wait till tomorrow and we'll probably even see one in real life instead of shady Twitter accounts, m'kay?

Sega emulator for Windows Phone returns to the Marketplace

18

Just days after we reported that Blue Tomato, the brand renaming of Sonic's Jewels, was submitted to the Marketplace, we're excited to announce that it's back and ready for downloading.

Blue Tomato is the Sega Game Gear and Master System emulator that first appeared on the Marketplace a few weeks ago. Since then, Sega appropriately exercised their copyright claim on "Sonic" and any Sega images from the emulator, causing the app to be pulled from the Marketplace. Now it's back with a new name, new graphics and even a sound engine on board making this in our opinion well worth the $1.99 $1.29 should you so desire this type of app.

Folks who previously bought Sonic Jewel's should be able to just "update" to this version with no new incurred costs. Hit us up in comments and let us know what you think. Grab Blue Tomato here in the Marketplace for $1.99 $1.29 with a free trial.

Nokia Lumia 800 Telstra launches March 13th?

18

Nokia announced back in January that the Nokia Lumia 800 would land in Australia back in January.  Nokia did mention March but failed to make mention which day in March.  We are now seeing speculation is strong that the Lumia 800 will launch through Telstra on March 13, 2012. There's also a few rumors on pricing.

The outright price of the Lumia 800 is expected to be $672. Plans with no Mobile Repayment Option should start with the $59 Freedom Connect Plan and, if I understand the Telstra plans, there will be a $49 Freedom Connect Plan with a $10 MRO payment.

The Lumia 800 is expected to be offered in Black and White versions at launch.  Which is an interesting combination itself.

Granted Telstra hasn't made an official statement on the Lumia 800 and there's no mention of the Windows Phone on their website. The nice thing about it all is that we'll know in just a short time if these rumors hold true.
