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.

You can get a Virgin Mobile EVO V 4G for $229, with a dual-core Snapdragon, front and rear cameras, 4.3" screen, and expandable memory. You can buy it without a contract. It will work on Sprint, but not sure about other networks...

I'd put this in the same general ball park. Especially if you consider that this is Nokia's retail price, and that we don't know what it will actually sell for. I'm not sure if Windows Mobile is actually a feature that people look for... but if it is, than that's a selling point of this device, too. I don't think there's another WinMo device in this price range. Period.
