Cheap and cheerful Nokia Lumia 510 coming to UK, NL 505 coming to Colombia, Chile and Peru
Nokia is spreading the low-end love around the world this quarter, with their Windows Phone 7.8 Nokia Lumia 510 set to come to UK soon.
Already available in France onÂ PhoneHouseÂ , NokiaPowerUser.com reports the handset has been announced as coming soon toÂ Phones4u. The slow-end smartphone has already been released in India and China.
PhoneHouse is currently selling the handset for EUR 189,99 (Â£160, $253) but I am sure there is more space for discounting the phone event further.
Meanwhile the earlier Telcel exclusive, the Nokia Lumia 505, is spreading its wings and heading to Latin countries.
WindowsPhoneApp.es reports the handset is heading for Colombia, Chile and Peru where it will be made available by the carrier Claro.
The Lumia 505 has similar specs to the 510, but with a larger screen and higher resolution 8 megapixel camera, and also runs Windows Phone 7.8.
In the words of Manuel Gonzalez, Director of Communications at Nokia for Latin America:
At Nokia we have a strong commitment to bring Windows Phone to new handsets at affordable prices and in different devices for everyone.Â With the Nokia Lumia 505, we intend to continue to welcome more people to experience the incredible experience that Windows Phone offers its users.
Windows Phone has seen good uptake with low-end handsets such as the Nokia 610, and by hitting even lower price points all around the world may be able to take some market share away from low-end Android handsets which mostly drive the success of that ecosystem.
