BUBBLY NETWORK O2 has revealed that it will start selling the Nokia Lumia 610 later this month, as the operator looks to expand its Windows Phone range.
We spotted the phone on the network's Coming Soon web page, which says that the handset will be landing at some point in July. Interestingly, the holding page reveals that O2 is also planning to sell the dirt-cheap Nokia 113, a basic candy bar handset which is likely to sell for around £40.
The Nokia Lumia 610 is also "affordable", yet not quite as basic as its 113 sibling. Running Windows Phone 7.5 Tango, the handset features all of Microsoft's usual mobile features including live tiles, social networking integration and Xbox Live gaming built-in.
There's an 800MHz processor, a 3.7in 480x800 touchscreen, a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 1300mAh battery. It's also available in four different colours - black, cyan, white and pink.
O2 was unable to tell us a release date or pricing for the Lumia 610, but we expect it to fetch around £150 on pay as you go.
