Nokia to launch Lumia 610 in Belgium next week for €249

Nokia has released a press statement detailing the imminent Belgium launch of the Lumia 610, the manufacturer's most affordable low-end Windows Phone. It is expected to be priced at €249 (including VAT).

  • I still thing the 610 is way too expensive for the limitations, the 710 is 250 (300-50€ cashback) at photohall...
    And the 900 is also way too expensive, wasn't it 450$ off contract? How did 450$ became 600€. Maybe at 500 they'll have a chance but I don't think so in Belgium people only buy iPhones if they can afford them, nothing else (exept a few galaxy s II).
  • Nokia dont seem to be hitting the low price points they need to combat those cheap androids. Should be launching at Euro 200, at this price is it really a better deal?
  • Eh the 710 is that price in Ireland!
  • Eh yeah, that's the official "advice price". But the Lumia 710 costs arround €240 in Belgium right now, so the real retail price of the Lumia 610 will probably drop immediately below €200.
    The 610 will cost €169 in the Netherlands, so it won't be a lot more expensive in Belgium.
  • You can still get an Omnia7 for about 200€. Nokia needs to lower the prices fast or otherwise this phone will flop in Europe like the Lumia 800 did.
