Windows Phone now becomes very competitive with low-end affordable Android phones as Nokia releases their new Lumia, the 510, on several Wellcomm outlets in the Philippines.
The Nokia Lumia 510 features a 4 inch 480 x 800 screen which is enough for most needs. Also, the device features 4 GB of internal memory with 7 GB of cloud storage through SkyDrive. It also features a 5 megapixel auto focus camera, which is enough for shooting photos.
An 800 MHz processor is running the device, which may seem slow on today’s standards and on paper, but everything is expected to be smooth due to its differentiating factor, the OS.
But that’s not what differentiates the Lumia 510. The device runs Windows Phone 7.5. It boasts its live tiles and Nokia’s integrated apps such as Maps (HERE), Drive and Transport. The device is now exclusively available at Wellcom stores and is priced at an affordable Php7,290.
It’s a very good strategy from Nokia, especially when the market is flooded with many other Android offerings. By pushing out a very smooth OS with above average specs (compared to Androids of the same price), Nokia may have a winner here.
After all, Nokia is pushing the “switch to Lumia” phrase everywhere – and the low price of this device may have the charm to win you over and surely make you switch to Lumia.
