After Lumia 610, Nokia Says It Needs Even Cheaper Model To Take On Android

After introducing Lumia 610 at MWC, Nokia now says it needs even cheaper models to take on Android. In an interview with Pocket-lint, Nokia VP Niklas said that they need to attain  €100 price mark to compete with Android in emerging models.

“Android is in many markets at the €100 price already, so that would suggest that if we are at €189 with the Lumia 610 we still have work to do when it comes to creating a lower-end first-time user smartphone.”

Unless chipset & display makers provide great support on bringing down cost, I think its very difficult to bring down Windows Phone devices prices at current specs. May be, Nokia has something up on its sleeves, Who knows!
