Nokia Lumia 610 and 900: global reactions

There were two BIG Nokia Lumia announcements today at #MWC12. The new Nokia Lumia 610 was revealed for the first time and the Lumia 900 returned from its launch at CES 2012 to take the shape of a global HSDPA+ offering. Just in-case you missed the new releases here is a little update, including some reactions from the community.

Nokia Lumia 610

There is a new Lumia in town and it’s the cheapest Lumia yet. Welcome to the world of the Nokia Lumia 610, considered a low-end device when standing next to its brothers but this phone really packs a punch. With 256 MB of RAM it is the least powerful Lumia in the Smartphone family but its price will appeal to a younger, cash strapped, social media conscious consumer.

These are just some of the specifications:

– People Hub: houses family and friends contacts in one place, along with Facebook and Twitter feeds.

– Nokia Music, Mix Radio, Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive and Nokia Reading.

– 5 megapixel camera

– XBOX Live Hub

– Available in White, Cyan, Magenta and Black

Here is the hands-on video, introduced by Tanja Rauniaho-Mitchell, the Product Marketing Manager behind the phone:

Nokia Lumia 900

Some of you may remember our community reaction videos for the Lumia 900 way back in January on Nokia Connects. Well the mighty Lumia 900 is back, but this time the phone is available to a wider market. Canadian Nokia fans will be happy to hear about an LTE version of the phone arriving in April, whilst everyone else will be waiting for a HSPA+ version of the Lumia 900, due to arrive outside of the US and Canada at some point in Q2 this year.

Here are some of the vitals:
