Nokia Lumia 610 wins two awards at Mobile World Congress


At CES the Nokia Lumia 900 walked away with a bevy of awards, and that Mobile World Congress 2012 it was the turn of the budget smartphone Nokia Lumia 610 to get some recognition.

The smartphone won Laptop Magazine’s Best Budget Smartphone, with Laptop Magazine writing:

Though the Lumia 610 will be marketed at budget-conscious consumers, Nokia didn’t skimp on this Windows Phone’s style or software. Available with a stunning metallic-edged black, cyan, red or white bezel, this handset (189 Euros unsubsidized) looks sexier than ,any high-end superphones. Even with just 256MB of RAM and a lower-end 800-MHz processor, the Lumia 610 provides smooth performance when navigating through Windows Phone 7.5 and using Nokia’s suite of innovative applications. It’s also the first phone to come bundled with Nokia Transport, a new app that helps you plan a route using public transportation rather than a car.

The smartphone won an even bigger accolade from Tom’s Hardware, winning their Best in Show award.

Hopefully the handset will be met equally well in the market by consumers.
