Nokia Lumia 610 has Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities, Lumia 800 and 710 owners frown

If you’re going to buy a Nokia Lumia 610 after it launches in Q2, you will be able to enjoy a feature that current Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 owners don’t have: Wi-Fi hotspot capability.

Nokia’s official website confirms that the 610 can be used “as a Wi-Fi Hotspot for up to 5 Wi-Fi-enabled devices.” I really don’t understand why Nokia omitted this feature on the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710, since it can be really useful from time to time. Maybe a future update will bring it to the two devices.

The Lumia 610 was announced last month at MWC 2012 as Nokia’s cheapest Windows Phone handset. It will retail for €189 before taxes and subsidies, offering a 3.7 inch WVGA Gorilla Glass display, HSDPA, 5MP rear camera, 800MHz processor, 256MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal memory. Reportedly, Nokia expects to sell at least 4 million Lumia 610s for the beginning.

In case you’re wondering, the Lumia 900 (Nokia’s other WP device that’s about to hit the market) will have Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities out of the box.

    I think it has 256 MB not 526 MB of RAM. Correct it thought some people might be misled.

    maybe it’s just that Nokia was waiting for the Tango update ? :)  ..   most likely as soon as the 610 begin to ship, the 710 and the 800 will have the same functionality

    I’m not very familiar yet with the Lumia 610. But from what I read it’s going to have a smaller screen size and reeeeeally affordable.
