Nokia Lumia 900, 610 coming to Australia Soon

Nokia Lumia 900, 610 coming to Australia Soon

Despite a March launch for the Lumia 800 in Australia, it looks like the Nokia Lumia 900 could be headed to the land down under along with it’s younger sibling, the Nokia Lumia 610! Media Outlet’s over the country have received their invitations to a Nokia Media Event today, where the big attractions will be the Lumia 900 and the Lumia 610 at an undisclosed location in Sydney. Being in Melbourne, we’re not receiving any invites but it’s the thought that counts Nokia (cough, cough).

Regardless, the date of this even is the 17th of May which can only mean that the two devices are expected to launch next month (or early July at the very latest, not too far behind the rest of the world!). The big question will be whether the Lumia 900 will have a 4G LTE option, or the standard HSPA+ like the rest of the international versions out there. Furthermore, the Lumia 610  is the lowest costing Windows Phone ever (and the first to get NFC), and if they can get it selling at a cheap price (or a low $19 contract) then you can guarantee the phone will sell well as people love a good bargain.

If you’ve forgotten the specs, they are as follows:

Lumia 610:

  • Processor – 800 MHz
  • RAM – 256 MHz
  • Camera – 5 megapixel rear facing camera
  • Screen – 3.7-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen (LCD)

Lumia 900:

  • Processor – 1.4GHz Qualcomm APQ8055 + MDM9200 Processor
  • Screen – 4.3-inch Clear Black Display AMOLED, 800 x 480 screen resolution
  • Camera – 8 megapixel Carl Zeiss Lens back camera with dual LED Flash, 1 megapixel Front Facing Camera
  • Battery – 1830mAh
  • OS – Windows Phone 7.5
  • Thickness – 11.4mm (0.45 inches)

    Keen as for the 610. I want to get this phone into Prepaid users hands!

  • http://techin5.com Jubbin Grewal @Techin5.com

    Yes that would be great, but Prepaid users won’t want to pay more than $250, this is more like 300 to 350

    189 Euros is $243 Australian dollars, so they should be able to keep it under that (plus I think Telstra might shave a little off the price of PrePaid phones they sell because they Lock them to Telstra)

    Whoops I was thinking Lumia 710 pricing lol. And it’s more like 190 pounds, so you’re looking at $300 AUD

    no really, it is 189 Euros, I checked it this evening again (for someone else asking actually). Nokia guy even said it himself a few months ago: http://www.trustedreviews.com/news/nokia-admits-lumia-610-still-not-cheap-enough

    You have to understand that the price given my Nokia isn’t the price we get. The only reason the Lumia 800 was so cheap in Australia was because it was 6 months late. Places that sold the Lumia 800 were selling them (unlocked) at a higher price than the 420 Euro’s said by Nokia at the start. And Heck, we still paid about $65 more than their launch price.

    bah! Stupid carriers ripping us off!

  • http://techin5.com Jubbin Grewal @Techin5.com

    Exactly, I’m just going on past experience here. Still, a $300 phone, or under would be excellent. Or a really cheap plan (or both?)

    I just want em on Prepaid, it’s the best thing they could do to increase people buying them!
