Vodafone has listed the Lumia 610 as "coming soon" in their Mobile Solutions Device Lists for May 2012. As well as listing the Windows Phone alongside the Lumia 800 and HTC Radar, a full-page advert is also included just before the Windows Phone section of the documentation.
Preaching all the features of the platform and the Nokia low-end device, the slide also contains a QR Code that links to the Microsoft ExpertZone. If you're not down for waiting until Vodafone releases the Lumia 610, Clove UK has the device listed at £180 unlocked.
In the meantime, check out our unboxing and hands on with the Lumia 610.
Thanks SilentAssassin for the heads up!

£79 (as its SIM locked) or GTFO.
considering the rescession the UK has slipped into, it might actually revert to a developing nation status by the time the 610 releases there, making the 610s status a phone for developing nations appropriate.
This deffo needs to be priced at £100 or thereabouts. £79 sounds amazing, but I'd be surprised if it launched at that. Would kill of the droid competition, that's for sure. One can't help but wonder if they could have added another 256MB for a couple of quid though, and had a fully fledged WP device for maybe £10 more. Anywhere sub-£100 and it would fly off the shelves. The reason it has to be around the £100 mark, is thanks to Vodafone having sold the 710 for £150 pretty much since they launched it!!
False, I would call it business ready once I am able to send PDF docs as well as attach several files to a single message. Currently, it is just a facebook phone.
