ITProPortal is now publishing a hands on walkthrough in pictures of the most affordable Windows Phone 7 OS mobile, from Nokia - the Lumia 610.

The 610 has a 3.7-inch TFT touch screen and is powered by a single core 800Mhz processor, with 256MB of RAM and 8GB of non-expandable internal storage, plus a 5megapixel camera.

This is compared to the previous budget WP7 handset, the Lumia 710, which housed the same storage capacity and screen size, along with camera - only with a single core 1.4Ghz CPU, supported by 512MB of RAM.

Nokia's Lumia 610 was only made possible by the lowering of the minim set of specifications, to run the OS, by Microsoft. This move is set to pave the way for the new version of the platform, codenamed ‘Tango', which will allow WP7 devices to become more accessible to the masses.
