Default Nokia Lumia 610 hitting Asia first in late April



Nokia has announced that the Nokia Lumia 610 will begin rolling out to various markets in Asia during the last week of April. The low-end Windows Phone, running the “Tango” update, will be released in the Philippines first, followed by China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Vietnam. It will be released in additional markets later on in the quarter.

The Lumia 610 will be priced at EUR189 off contract--approximately $250--and it will come in a rainbow of colors: black, cyan, magenta, and white. Customers on the Orange cellular network will also receive NFC support, a first for Windows Phones worldwide.

The full press release can be found below.

Espoo, Finland - Nokia announced today that the Nokia Lumia 610, its most affordable Lumia smartphone, has begun rolling out in Asia. It will go on sale first in the Philippines in the final week of April, and in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam in the following weeks. The Nokia Lumia 610 will also begin selling in other regions this quarter.

The Nokia Lumia 610 is designed as the perfect introduction to Windows Phone for a younger audience. PeopleHub makes it easy to keep in touch with friends, providing instant access to social networks and bringing all mobile, email, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn contacts into one place. It also makes it easier to browse the Web with Internet Explorer and to access games through Xbox Live. The Lumia 610 will also come with WiFi tethering and flip-to-silence, features that will be made available across the Lumia portfolio.

Available with Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive, Nokia Transport and Nokia Music, people can also choose from thousands of apps in the Windows Phone Marketplace to further personalize the experience. With a distinctive profile and finely beveled metallic edges, the Nokia Lumia 610 is built to convey both quality and aspiration.

"The Nokia Lumia 610 will introduce Windows Phone to a new generation of smartphone users, offering something very different to the monochromatic smartphones filling shelves today," said Jo Harlow, Head of Smart Devices at Nokia. "PeopleHub, Nokia services and quality apps - coupled with a fast and friendly interface - will make for a great smartphone experience at a great price."

The Nokia Lumia 610 is also a great smartphone for students who will appreciate the built-in Microsoft Office app. Word mobile, PowerPoint mobile, Excel mobile to manage documents, and OneNote mobile to capture notes, ideas, pictures and voice memos make working on the go easier. With SkyDrive, files and notes can be synchronized, and opened and edited from the PC or the phone.

The Nokia Lumia 610 will be available in black, cyan, magenta and white, and will sell at an estimated retail price of EUR189 before applicable taxes and subsidies.
