Nokia is about to launch a new affordable Windows Phone, it seems. We first heard about the Lumia 610 a few days ago when Nokia’s upcoming announcements at Mobile World Congress were allegedly leaked. And today we get confirmation of this device’s existence, because it just received certification from the Indonesian authorities.
This being no unsubstantiated rumor, it pretty much guarantees that a Nokia Lumia 610 is coming at some point. Sure, there’s a very small chance that this is a mistake, and there’s also a chance that it won’t be unveiled at MWC.
But all signs seem to point to it being announced over there in fact. And the Lumia 610 should, as its model number indicates, be the cheapest Nokia Windows Phone yet. Perhaps it will run Windows Phone Tango. We’ll have to wait and see.
What we do know courtesy of the Indonesian testing is that the Lumia 610 will support 3G on the 2100 band, as well as GSM on the 900 and 1800 bands. It will also have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity built-in.
