Not just Skype: Nokia Lumia 610 can also not install Tango, Angry Birds, PES, others
WindowsPhoneApps.es have posted this hands-on video of the new Nokia Lumia 610 Windows Phone, and they note that the handset is a smooth and fluid as all other Windows Phones, and that the OS is very well optimised for the 256 MB RAM and 800 Mhz processor.
They do however also note that besides the much ballyhooed inability to install Skype, a number of other big-name apps such as the video calling app Tango, the rather famous Angry Birds and even the football game PES will not install on the handset.
In short, while Microsoft has preserved the signature fluidity of the OS, they have seriously compromised the access to headline apps in Marketplace, something I think buyers should be made aware of before they buy the phone, not after they get home.
