Nokia Corporation (ADR)(NYSE:NOK) launched its first two Windows 8 smartphones the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920, in an effort to strengthen their erstwhile position in the market and re-build the brand image that it once had. A surprising revelation followed right after – a brand new Nokia phone using the Windows Phone 7 platform will soon be available in the market.
The smartphone goes by the name of Nokia Lumia 510. The information has been revealed by the guys over at GSMArena who managed to gain access to an image of the phone and its specifications.
One of the reasons for this move on the company’s part is that to own a Windows smartphone at a reasonable rate, Windows Phone 7 is the perfect choice. Microsoft’s standards of minimum specification for its Windows Phone 8 operating system are quite high, which why Nokia might release similar Windows Phone 7 smartphones in the coming years.
The Nokia Lumia 510 will have the following specifications:
· 4 inch touch-screen
· 800MHz processor powering the phone.
· 256MB of RAM and 4GB of on-board memory
· Version 7.8 of the Windows Phone operating maybe pre-loaded.
The beginning of 2013 might be the launch period of Nokia Lumia 510 and the expected price is around £100.
