Nokia Lumia 610, 710, 800 and 900: which is right for you?


The Nokia Lumia 900 is the most fully-featured Nokia Lumia yet yet. The Windows phone arrives in stores on April 27, 2012. Till then we’ve been looking at the entire range, asking: which is the best Nokia Lumia for you? Let’s take a look.

Nokia Lumia 900 – what makes it unique?

Each Nokia Lumia has its own merits, but whichever model you pick, you’ll be getting the best quality Windows Phone experience wrapped up in a gorgeous Nokia handset.

From the bargain Nokia Lumia 610, complete with groundbreaking NFC technology to the fully-equipped Nokia Lumia 900: here’s the lowdown on each.

Nokia Lumia 610: the first NFC Windows Phone

The Nokia Lumia 610 will bring all the Windows Phone goodness from the Nokia Lumia range to stores at a low cost. Get it on an Orange contract upon release and you’ll be part of history as an owner of the first Near Field Communication (NFC) compatible Windows phone.

NFC lets you send information to other NFC-able phones by tapping them together. If you own a pair of Nokia Play 360° speakers you’ll be able to simply tap your phone against it to start streaming content from your phone to the speakers to play out loud. The Nokia Lumia 610 will be a real game-changer when it launches in Q3, and it will be available at game-changing prices.

Nokia Lumia 710: the Windows phone you can make your own
The mid-priced Nokia Lumia 710 delivers all the Windows 7.5 live tiles, notifications, apps and Nokia mapping abilities in another affordable handset that you can customise and make your own using customisable covers to create new two-toned looks. It uses the same CPU as the Nokia Lumia 800, so when it comes to bangs per buck it’s a tough handset to beat.

Nokia Lumia 800: the original flagship Lumia
We’re talking about the original trendsetter here. The Nokia Lumia 800 was the first Nokia Lumia Windows Phone handset. It still looks as gorgeous now as it did the first time we laid our eyes on it. The Lumia 800 resembles the Nokia Lumia 900 in a more compact form, with a 3.7-inch display and an 8-megapixel camera capable of HD video recording. Now available in white, the Nokia Lumia 800 is sexier than ever.

Nokia Lumia 900: the granddaddy of them all
The big cheese of the Nokia Lumia range has everything you could ever want from a Nokia Lumia phone, bringing more functionality and even more polycarbonate sexiness to the Lumia family. Its 4.3-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display is a thing of beauty: it’s just the right size for playing games and viewing films downloaded from the Windows Phone Marketplace.

With 16GB of internal storage backed up by SkyDrive cloud storage, there’s plenty of space to store music, games and movies. The Nokia Lumia 900’s 1.4GHz processor makes apps, games, and menus whizz by with no sign of lag. An 8-megapixel camera, video calling, and HD recording round up quite the complete Nokia Lumia package.
