Nokia in India launches the Windows Phone 7.5 Lumia 510

Nokia officially announced its plans to launch the budget priced Nokia Lumia 510 smartphone just a couple of weeks ago. Now the newest, and perhaps one of the last, members of the Windows Phone 7.5 smartphone family is officially on sale in India.

The Times of India reports that retailers are selling the smartphone starting at INR 9,999 without a SIM card. That's about $183 with current exchange rates. Nokia's official website in India also has the Lumia 510 as being on sale, but with the slightly higher price of INR 10,499.

As we have reported before, the Nokia Lumia 510 has a four inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor, 256 MB RAM, four GB of onboard storage, and a five megapixel camera. Nokia claims it has 8.4 hours of talk time.

The Lumia 510 is also supposed to go on sale in China and other parts of Asia, along with South America, in the coming months. There is no word on if it will make an appearance in North America. However, that seems unlikely as Nokia is pushing hard for its various Windows Phone 8 devices in that part of the world.

This does not bother me... however, the bigwigs of Nokia India thought it to be a wise move to launch the Lumia 900 on the heels of the Lumia 920 and 820. Dumbasses. What happened... the 900 got glowing (pun intended) customer reviews and feedback on all online retailing websites... Some people in Nokia India really need to get sacked now...

This would be considered a really low end phone here. Contrary to popular belief, a LOT of people use much more expensive phones. You'll be surprised at the sheer number of people out here walking around with iPhones, Notes, etc.

Sure, there is a market for low end phones like these as well, but that is decreasing pretty fast.

Samsung is most trusted brand in India even Nokia lumia 920 is better than s3, people here will prefer s3, because of their service and customer support, low budget smartphone phone from Nokia is out of question(Where Samsung is king).

When Indian market is full of dirt cheap android sets which you can get for ₹4000, no average guy will buy this.

It should cost ₹8.5k (~156 USD) instead if Nokia really wants this to sell well..
But I guess it is the build quality they are playing on.

In my opinion this phone is set to fail as its basically the Lumia 610. They should of just knocked the price down for the 610 which is something like £100 ATM to maybe £70 and release it with 7.8 and I think they would of been onto a winner there.

Extremely low end

Does it have a SD card slot? if not, so not worth it. Just 4Gb internal storage? really?

4GB may not seem like a lot but you can get a lot of apps on. Im getting the HTC 8S and that has 4GB on storage (granted it has a SD card slot) but on that 4 gig I can get the 100 apps I have on it, and a nice amount of games.

The kind of person who would buy this phone wont want/need a vast amount of storage.

It might be enough for apps, but what about listening to music on the go? And storing camera photos?

Once you factor in all that, 4 GB is indeed very low. And worse, you don't actually get the full 4 GB.

Weird wording of the title: "Nokia in India launches the Windows Phone 7.5 Lumia 510". Maybe it should have been "Nokia launches the Windows Phone 7.5 Lumia 510 in India" or "In India, Nokia launches the Windows Phone 7.5 Lumia 510"

£150 for a phone that is already obsolete?

Some people in developing countries don't cry about not having the latest size tiles.

WP8 + Same Price = Game over for Android . but nokia doesn't seem to be interested

WP8's minimum requirements would make the device far too expensive.

yeah, but the thing is there are bunch of 4" Androids at this price here. MS will have to find a way get the hardware requirement slightly down. there must some cheaper dual core Socs on which WP8 can run

WP is now NT-based, it's more demanding in terms of power and battery, that's heraps why the Lumia 900 has a better battery life than the 920.
