Has a Mexican wireless carrier outed the Nokia Lumia 505?

In November, wireless providers in India started selling the Nokia Lumia 510, the newest (and very low-priced) member of Nokia's Windows Phone 7.5/7.8 family of smartphones. Now a wireless carrier in Mexico has apparently outed a similar version, with the Nokia Lumia 505 brand name.

The Facebook page of Guerrero Móvil has posted an image of the previously unannounced smartphone, which will be sold in Mexico by Telcel. In addition, WinP.cn has posted word that a device with the Lumia 505 name has passed certification by the Wi-Fi Alliance.

It's likely that the features of the Lumia 505 could be similar to the Lumia 510, which has a four inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor, 256 MB RAM, 4GB of on-board storage, and a five megapixel camera.

There's no word on pricing yet for this new Lumia 505 variant, but we expect it to be in the very low price range like its Lumia 510 cousin. Microsoft and Nokia have said in the past that they want their Windows Phone products to expand outside the normal smartphone market, which is typically composed of higher-end devices with higher prices.

We expect that Nokia will make the full and official reveal of the Lumia 505 any day now, along with its availability and final price point.

its not like the ppl needs to work, obviously if you are in a company you will have more probability to buy a hig end phone but most of the ppl and technology in mexico are outdated, even if you have a superpowerful phone it will be useless,you wont squize their full potential....so most of the ppl in mexico have normal regular and not price phones and the youngers and the hipsters iphones...but thats because ignorance...some users know what they buy and cannot be tricked, but because of the other ignorance, that why we have TELCEL and TELMEX owned by the most richest man on Earth and with some of the highest prices on the planet....thats why

Nice to see lower cost Lumia coming in.

WP 7.5 or 7.8 with just phone and productivity usage wont be a bad thing with lower specs hardware and really lower price point

Nokia is supposed to start shipping in China today. If they have a low cost Lumia 5XX variant that can run on China Mobile's TD-SCDMA 3G (650 million subscribers) it will be the biggest selling phone in history. Don't forget iPhone doesn't work on China Mobile's 3G. All China Mobile iPhones are on 2G plans (ie. fashion accessories)

Watching and waiting.

If iPhone can be sold worldwide ... and Galaxy SIII ... why can't they just simply sell the 920 or 820 to all places, including Mexico? How does it make "cents" to make so many damn variants? Isn't it worth more to have just one or two world-recognized models than a half dozen of so-so low-sellers?

Clearly you dont understand how unstable the economy here (In Mexico) is. Some people need a smartphone because their works demand mail connectivity or so but cant afford a high end phone. This covers that necessity. People NEED to work.

Looks pretty low-end, but the basics of Windows Phone have a tendency to run well even with lower specs.

I'm looking forward to when WP8 hardware can cost less for folks around the world like this Lumia 505.
