Germany is an emerging market??
I came to comment the same! Why don't they release this on really emerging markets?? Like latinoamerican countries. I think that in my country (Mexico), it would be a great deal, for a very low price you get a very fast, smooth, flawlessly and good looking OS. Not like all the low-end android phones that my friends have, they are so slow and laggy.
theres no doubt that itll be going to Mexico
We've got consumers in every country that still own feature phones, they could do with a 610, which doesn't cost an arm and a leg and doesn't come packed with an 8-core chip.
Two weeks - that's pretty quick! The Lumia 900 just went through the FCC, so hopefully, it will be available to market just as quick.
When is Nokia (and MS for that matter) coming to the Philippines and officially introduce WP7/8? The Philippines IS an emerging market and Lumia 610 is the perfect device to introduce WP here!
I saw several Windows Phone 7 phones for sale in a store called Digital World in a Mall in Manila near the Intercontinental Hotel.
