Nokia’s entry-level and flagship WP7 handsets coming soon.

During the Mobile World Conference, Nokia officially announced the long awaited follow up to last year’s Windows Phone 7.5 based smartphones, with the Lumia 610 and Lumia 900.

The Nokia Lumia 900 is an upgrade from the Lumia 800 released last year, will be running on a 1.4GHz single-core Snapdragon Scorpion processor with 512MB RAM and 16GB storage. Running an 8MP camera, the Lumia 900 will have a 480×800 4.3-inch AMOLED screen. With an 1830mAh battery, the Lumia 900 is expected to provide 300 hours standby and 7 hours talk time.

The Nokia Lumia 900 will also come out around June, but with an expected sticker price of $650 (AED 2,400).

The Nokia Lumia 610 is an entry-level handset that will be running Windows Phone Mango on an 800MHz single-core Snapdragon S1 processor with 256MB RAM and 8GB storage. In addition to the 5MP camera with auto-focus and LED flash, the Lumia 610 will be supporting a respectable 3.7-inch (480×800) TFT LCD, weighing just 131.5 grams. All of this powered by a moderate 1300mAh battery to give you up to 7.5 hours talk time and 530 hours of standby time.

The Nokia Lumia 610 is expected to be out around June, with an expected retail price of $250 (AED 950).


From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.

    This the global 900 that was announced, right? Because the 900 with LTE for AT&T in US was announced at CES, if I recall.

      Correct. It’s a world phone now.

    When these Lumia models will be available in Middle East markets?

    Can’t wait to get my hands on Nokia 900. I wish they release the factory unlock for Middle east soon … We do have 4G LTE now … 3G usually never works … So let’s see how 4G revolutionize the whole “stay-in-touch-on-the-go” scenario. Plus the good looks and of course Windows. iPhone and Galaxy are going to have a tough time untill they come out with 4G capable phones and not the tabs or note books :D
