How are the reviews for Nokia Lumia 510? I have been on the lookout for a phone under 10k and somehow not being able to convince myself to go for micromax,karbonn etc although specs wise they eat the bigger brand products for lunch and dinner. The Lumia 510 is available for around 9900. The basic usage is FB, whatsapp, music and few basic games apart from the regular phone use.

It is good enough now but 6 months from now, new apps wont work very well on its limited RAM. For a Windows Phone,i suggest to wait a couple of weeks for lumia 620. Much more contemporary and expected price of 12-15k. IMO it would be a much better buy

Any conclusive dates for its launch? Also I feel that it may be priced above 15k or more near it. My budget is kind of limited and would be a real stretch at 12-13k.

It should be pretty soon (already out in some other markets). The 620 is a nice little phone, and considered as an entry point to Lumia Windows 8 range.

And if you really need to go for the 510, its better to wait until the launch of 620. The price for 510 then could drop further as the model will be fully obsolete by then.

It is already out in APAC markets like Malaysia, Thailand.

http://news.yahoo.com/aggressively-p...193227430.html

I am sure it will be cheaper in India by atleast 10-15% (my experience). 800RM is already 14k. It WILL hit your sweet spot - Nokia has no other option.

Wait another 15 days and HS18 will give it cheaper

According to the neighbourhood mobile store , the Micromax Canvas HD will be in stores on 26th Feb.
They are accepting "bookings" (d'uh!) for the same right now and they plan to retail it for 15k rupees.

Guys. Need a very basic mobile phone with wireless FM. What are my options? Seems like Samsung and Nokia doesn't have anything like that. Or do they? Other brands like Micromax and Zen are the last resort options.
