Nokia’s budget Windows Phone the Lumia 610 seems to have hit a snag. The handset comes with only 256 MB of RAM, which are the lowest specs required to run Microsoft’s operating system. Unfortunately, this is the reason the handset cannot run apps such as Rovio’s Angry Birds, Skype, PES 2012, Plants vs Zombies, and Assassin’s Creed. If you attempt to download these apps, you will get an error message. Handsets such as the Lumia 800 and 900 do not experience this problem.
Microsoft has tried to avoid the fragmentation that plagues Android. Sadly, in their attempt to bring cheaper Windows Phone handsets into the hands of the consumer, these budget Windows Phones have fallen victim to fragmentation. However, the difference between WP and Android is the sheer number of Android handsets in the market compared to only a few Windows Phones.
Are you willing to get your hands on a low-end Nokia Lumia 610 at the expense of not being able to install Angry Birds, Skype, and more? Give us your thoughts.
