UK RETAILER Phones 4U has revealed that the Nokia Lumia 510 will be arriving in the UK after all, despite Nokia's earlier insistance that it wouldn't see a release in Blighty.
The Nokia Lumia 510 was announced back in October, but then the Finnish phone maker told The INQUIRER that the phone would only be released in India and China. However, Phones 4U has revealed that the phone will be released here in the UK, having added the handset to its 'Coming Soon' webpage.
There's no word on pricing or a release date yet, but we've contacted Nokia for further information.
The Nokia Lumia 510 is an affordable Windows Phone 7.5 smartphone, offering customers a cheap alternative to the Nokia Lumia 920 handset. The colourful handset features a 4in 480x800 resolution touchscreen and has an 800MHz Snapdragon processor.
While it's not the most exciting of phones, there's also a 5MP rear-facing camera, 4GB of internal storage, 7GB of free Microsoft Skydrive cloud storage and a 1,300mAh battery.
Speaking at the handset's launch, Jo Harlow, EVP of Nokia Smart Devices said, "With the Nokia Lumia 510 we continue to meet our commitment to bring Windows Phone to new, lower price points."
"People who use Windows Phone quickly realize how much more intuitive it is than other smartphone platforms, and Nokia Lumia is the best embodiment of the Windows Phone experience. With the Nokia Lumia 510 we're looking forward to welcoming more people into the Windows Phone experience."
