WP8 Nokia Flame is another Nokia Lumia 610 killer

imageThe Verge is full of Nokia Windows Phone 8 rumours today.

The latest is a new low-end Windows Phone 8 handset, the Nokia Flame, with 4 inch screen, 512MB RAM, a 1.0GHz dual-core processor, 5-megapixel camera, and 4GB of storage.

The 4GB of storage can of course be expanded via microSD card.

Like the previously leaked Nokia Zeal, the handset is set for Q1 2013 release and will be targeted at the low-cost markets and cost around the same as the Nokia Lumia 610.

The handset is good news for those who would like the WP7/WP8 fragmentation to be ended as quickly as possible, rather than dragging it out for another few years.

Given the rumour of a range of low-cost Nokia phones, the possibility exists that these handsets will be differentiated by styling and marketing e.g the Zune-styled Zeal may be a music handset while the Flame may be for photos for example.
