Nokia-Lumia-601Techradar reports that their sources have confirmed Nokia will be showing a “budget” Windows Phone at “Mobile World Congress 2012 which will be “be priced very aggressively in UK shops.”

The phone is expected to run the low-end Tango version of Windows Phone, which we write about here, and may cost as little as £100 unlocked.

The Nokia 601 has been rumoured for some time now and according to this Pocketnow render may have an 8 megapixel camera, which may be the “unusual software feature normally found only on high-end smartphones” which Forbes spoke about a few days ago.  That is of course if the unnamed supplied did not know their software from their hardware.

We have speculated before that price point is one of Nokia’s main differentiating features. Do our readers think this is the best approach to get Windows Phone volume? Let us know below.
