Unimpressive Nokia Lumia 510 to land in the UK with Windows Phone 7.8

Nokia has confirmed that it will be ranging the Lumia 510, a phone which has almost the same specification as the Lumia 610, in the UK. Initially, it said that it is only intended for emerging markets like China, India and South America.

News outlet Omio managed to track down the Nokia Lumia 510 on Phones4U’s coming soon page. The page was then modified but a cached version remained. The device was announced three months ago and will originally run on Windows Phone 7.5 with an update to Windows Phone 7.8 almost a certainty.

When it comes to specifications, there’s not much that separates it from the Lumia 610. It carries a single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 SoC clocked at 800MHz with 256MB of RAM, 4GB onboard storage, a 5-megapixel camera and a 4in 800 x 480 pixel display.

Although no pricing has been announced, we suspect that it will carry a suggested retail price close to £150 given that the Lumia 620 (and HTC’s Windows Phone 8S) can be had on the market for £180.

More importantly though, there are still (plenty of ) stocks of Nokia’s last generation handsets, the Lumia 610, Lumia 710 and Lumia 800 with the two aforementioned models being both superior and cheaper.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
