Those of you looking to pick up the Nokia Lumia 610 in the Netherlands, despite having some less functions than it's older 710, 800 and 900 siblings, will want to pay attention. That phone looks to be launching fairly soon as the site PDAShop.nl now has the phone with full specifications listed on the site.
The 610 with its 800MHz CPU, 3.7" TFT (non-ClearBlack) screen with GorillaGlass and 5MP camera runs Windows Phone 7.5.1 aka "Tango" and should be price aggressively. In this case, we hope that means cheaper than the Allegro which is fetching for € 269 currently.
Representing an effort to win over the lower-end of the smartphone market for first time buyers, teenagers and the like, the Lumia 610 looks to a fairly solid phone even with its more limited-hardware. See our hands on with the Lumia 610 here.

269€ has to be a joke... The 710 costs 280€ in Germany.
It's got to be priced much less than the 710. Nokia for sure wouldn't miss this, and has to be aware that at $40 for a 710 the only price that would make a 610 worth anybody's time is, well, free...
Here's another site (belsimpel.nl) in the Netherlands that displays it. Their price for the 610 is 189,- € on pre-order.
Maybe cuz its new
