Nokia planning to produce Windows Phones even cheaper than the Lumia 610

In a conference call with investors Nokia CEO Stephen Elop told investors that they intend to tackle Android, not just on the high end but also the very low end.

“We need to compete with Android aggressively," said Elop. "The low-end price point war is an important part of that," and that they would "broaden the price point range that we’re pursuing with Lumia."

He said the company was  "absolutely" planning to attack the low end, saying “We had plans already to go lower than the 610," and that they have identified "ways to go even further than we anticipated."

It is difficult to see how Nokia could develop a performant Windows Phone at an even low price points while still maintaining their current spec sheet, which does make one wonder what a very low cost Windows Phone would look like.
