Are these pictures of the Nokia 610?

Nok4US have been sent some pictures by a tipster purporting to be of the new low end Nokia 610.

The handset seems to be a Tango generation device, with a 3.5 inch capacitive screen, 256 MB RAM but still a 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash and interchangeable back covers like on the Nokia Lumia 710.

The device is pleasingly thin, and without the garish cover may look pretty good.

Like Nok4US we have no way to verify if the device is real, but if so Nokia may have another hit on their hands.

Thanks izzynwa in our comments for the tip.

Nokia 601 may be a super-cheap Pay as You Go Windows Phone

Nokia-Lumia-601Techradar reports that their sources have confirmed Nokia will be showing a “budget” Windows Phone at "Mobile World Congress 2012 which will be “be priced very aggressively in UK shops.”

The phone is expected to run the low-end Tango version of Windows Phone, which we write about here, and may cost as little as £100 unlocked.

The Nokia 601 has been rumoured for some time now and according to this Pocketnow render may have an 8 megapixel camera, which may be the “unusual software feature normally found only on high-end smartphones” which Forbes spoke about a few days ago.  That is of course if the unnamed supplied did not know their software from their hardware.

We have speculated before that price point is one of Nokia’s main differentiating features. Do our readers think this is the best approach to get Windows Phone volume? Let us know below.
