Nokia has announced that the first country to get the 610 (in “the final week of April”) is The Philippines. Starting the following weeks, the new Lumia will be released in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, and China (as the Lumia 610c). Other regions will get it later this quarter.
The 610 is Nokia’s most affordable Windows Phone device. It will cost around €189 ($248) before taxes and subsidies, featuring WP 7.5, a 3.7 inch WVGA Gorilla Glass display, HSDPA, Wi-Fi (with tethering), 5MP rear camera, 800MHz processor, 256MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal memory.
As reported last week, there will be an NFC-ready version of the Lumia 610, expected to be launched in Europe by Orange starting the third quarter of the year.
