As both Nokia and Microsoft realise the need for cheaper smartphones running Windows Phone, the 610 comes out as a cheaper variant of the Lumia 710. Priced not very far from the 710, the 610 is powered by a 800 MHz processor, 256MB RAM, a 5MP camera and features a new version of Windows Phone 7.5 called 'Tango'.
Low and mid-ranged Android phones have managed a growth rate of over 500% for the Google backed platform, thus highlighting the importance of cheaper smartphones. The Nokia Lumia 610 is perhaps the beginning for low end smartphones powered by Windows Phone.
While the Nokia X and X+ form the bottom tier of the Android-based smartphones from Nokia, the Nokia XL is bigger than the two. First up, it comes with a bigger 5-inch display, but has the same 800 x 480 pixel resolution, thereby resulting in a lower pixel density. Next, because of the bigger body, it also gets fitted with a bigger 2000mAh battery, that sounds like it should serve decent uptime to the Nokia XL’s modest hardware. The camera system is also a step-up from the X and X+; with a 5 megapixel autofocus sensor at the back coupled with an LED flash. There’s also a front-facing 2MP camera for video calling and selfies. Rest is the same as the X+.

The Nokia XL comes in the same colourful shells like the rest of the X series and the Lumia series, but doesn’t run Windows Phone inside. It’s Android; but not traditional Android like you know it. It is Android that’s void of all Google services; like Maps, Gmail, YouTube etc, that are replaced with Microsoft’s services. Its UI is also a cross between the Windows Phone’s Tile-based interface coupled with the Fastlane multi-tasking system found on the Asha 500 series. So what’s the benefit? Because of the Android base, Nokia says existing Android apps can be easily ported to the Nokia X software platform. There’s also the possibility of sideloading APK files directly. Nokia has their own app store to discover new apps for the Nokia XL.

A 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 chip with 768MB makes the phone work. There’s 4GB of internal storage (Lumia 520 has 8GB), along with a microSD card slot to expand it further. The Nokia XL is a Dual SIM phone with 3G support. It also comes with Nokia’s HERE maps with offline navigation, Nokia MixRadio streaming music service and one month of unlimited Skype-Out calls.
