Lumia 510 will sell for $199 before subsidies
Nokia has unveiled the latest smartphone in its Lumia line called the Lumia 510. The Lumia 510 is the most affordable Lumia offered yet, promising to be a stylish and affordable entry-level smartphone. The device is available in five colors: red, yellow, cyan, white, and black.
The phone offers a four-inch (800x480) display and a five-megapixel autofocus camera on the back. The phone, unfortunately, runs the Windows Phone 7.5 operating system due to its Snapdragon S1 processor, meager 256MB of RAM, and 4GB storage capacity.
Other features include integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS/A-GPS, a micro-USB port, and 3.5 mm audio connector. Nokia promises up to 8.4 hours of talk time and up to 738 hours on standby.
The Lumia 510 will land this November in India, China, South America, and Asia. The phone will sell for $199 before any carrier subsidies.

Microsoft has paid Nokia $86 in subsidies per Lumia phone shipped.
This statement make M$ come off bad, however when the facts are analyzed, turns out Nokia should have asked for more in their "One Supplier Exclusivity Deal, i,e. Platform payments of $250m per quarter".
What with Nokia Killing Symbian before its time, they made the mess their own.
I have a sneaky feeling M$ wants Nokia to do poorly so they can scopo them up off the ground and roll them neatly into Bellevue.
