More Lumia WinPhones from Nokia

Nokia has expanded its range of WIndows Phones with two more Lumia models, addressing high end and midrange price points.

The Nokia Lumia 900 features a 4.3in screen with a polycarbonate body in white, cyan, magenta or black. Other specs include a 1.4GHz processor, HSDPA+ support, an 8MP dual-flash camera with Carl Zeiss optics, and a 1MP front-facing camera.

Along with the usual Windows Phone features, the 900 includes the Nokia Music service, Nokia Transport (directions to public transport), Nokia City Lens (augmented reality), and a collection of local apps from businesses such as Qantas, Australia Post and Foxtel.

The 900 goes on sale next month at $699 from major retailers. It will also be available from Optus for $0 upfront on a $60 plan. Not all outlets will offer the full range of colours.

The Lumia 610 is aimed at those on a tighter budget. With a recommended price of $329, it will be available from Boost Mobile in June and from Vodafone and major retailers in July. It comes in the same colour range as the 910, and with the same proviso regarding availability.

Built around a single core 800MHz CPU and a 3.7in screen, features include HSDPA (7.2Mbps) connectivity and a 5MP camera. The software bundle includes maps, turn-by-turn navigation, Nokia Transport, and Nokia Music.



“We are seeing real momentum for our Nokia Lumia smartphones among consumers and business users since launching the Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 in March, as well as increasing developer interest and exponential growth in our ecosystem,” said Nokia Australia MD Chris Carr.

“The introduction of the new Nokia Lumia 900 and Nokia Lumia 610 has been very well-received overseas, and we expect a similar consumer reaction here."
