The Nokia Lumia 610 is the most affordable Windows Phone 7 from Nokia. At just Php10,980, you can get a smartphone that can handle all your basic tasks. It’s powered by an 800MHz processor with 8GB internal storage and 5-megapixel camera. It’s suitable for people who values style and function that won’t break the budget.

Moving up one notch is the Nokia Lumia 710 which is currently only being offered by Smart via their Special Edition Plan 1000 (P450 monthly amortization). A 1.4GHz processor powers this phone with an 8GB storage and 5-megapixel camera. If you want more speed and power on your Windows Phone but don’t want to over-commit your budget, this is your best bet.

The Nokia Lumia 800 is very similar to the Lumia 710 in terms of specs. It does, however, looks really beautiful with a unibody polycarbonate shell and a curved 3.7-inch Gorilla Glass panel with a gorgeous AMOLED display. This phone will set you back Php23,800 but it will surely make heads turn.

If having a big screen is important to you, the Nokia Lumia 900 is the biggest and baddest of the four. Sporting a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED screen, it will surely make you want to watch movies on it. It also has an 8-megapixel f/2.2 lens making it a really decent option for taking photos. It is also the only Lumia phone having a front-facing camera if video-chatting is your thing. SRP for this baby is Php27,990.

      may test unit sa Robinson’s Galleria na test ko kahapon yung Lumia 610…Ok na para sa akin…Surfing lang nman ang habol ko…native Flash. I tried going to Youtube.com pero para makapanood ng videos, kailangan pa i download yung Youtube app. Sa wifi connection ng Nokia store, 3 minutes lang from start of download…nakaka nood na ako ng videos…that is TWO THUMBS UP for me…

    also, I tried testing and I got keyword invalid reply. 🙁

    • greyrik

    • thanks for the correction. will ask nokia why it’s not working.

      • tu9tifive

        maybe because it only works on Symbian OS…

  • Ang mahal pala n’ya hehehe. Kasing mahal ng laptop 🙂

    Hi Calvin — Thanks for the article. Just wish to correct a typo in our press release. Correct format for raffle entries is: “Text I CAN LUMIA // and send to 2960 for Globe and Smart subscribers.” Sorry about that =)

    Also, the Lumia 900 will come bundled with a Nokia Purity Stereo Headset so the price might seem more reasonable to others now =)

    @greyrik — tried *#06# on my Lumia just now and the IMEI came out =)

    • Thanks for the clarification Nikka.
