Nokia Lumia 610 arrives in Canada just in time for Back-To-School
Launching with Koodo, the Nokia Lumia 610 is a fast and stylish way for students to stay connected with people, things and places
Toronto, July 10, 2012 – Today, Nokia announced that the Nokia Lumia 610 is now available in Canada. The award-winning smartphone launches today with Koodo Mobile.
The Nokia Lumia 610 is Nokia’s most affordable Lumia smartphone, designed as the perfect introduction to Windows Phone for a younger audience. PeopleHub makes it easy to keep in touch with friends, providing instant access to social networks and bringing all mobile, email, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn contacts into one place. It also makes it easier to browse the Web with Internet Explorer and to access games through Xbox LIVE. The Lumia 610 will also come with WiFi tethering and flip-to-silence.
“The Nokia Lumia 610 will introduce Windows Phone to a new generation of smartphone users, offering something very different from other smartphones available today,” said Richard White, General Manager of Nokia Canada. “PeopleHub, Nokia services and quality apps – coupled with a fast and friendly interface – will make for a great smartphone experience at a great price.”
Available with Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive, people can also choose from thousands of apps in the Windows Phone Marketplace to further personalize the experience. Students can also download music through Microsoft’s Zune Music + Videos service. With a distinctive profile and finely beveled metallic edges, the Nokia Lumia 610 is built to convey both quality and aspiration.
“Since launching as Canada’s back to basics wireless company, Koodo has focused on providing smart and simple mobile service alternatives that meet the needs of our unique customer base,” says Kevin Banderk, Chief Koodo Officer. “For many Koodo customers, easy mobile access to email or social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter is now an essential communication need. The new Nokia Lumia 610 offers these customers a high-quality smartphone featuring easy interactivity with popular social networking sites and much more.”
The Nokia Lumia 610 is also a great smartphone for students who will appreciate the built-in Microsoft Office app. Word mobile, PowerPoint mobile, Excel mobile to manage documents and OneNote mobile to capture notes, ideas, pictures and voice memos make working on the go easier. With SkyDrive, files and notes can be synchronized, and opened and edited from the PC or the phone.
The Nokia Lumia 610 is available in black for $50 on the Tab ($200 without the Tab). The white Nokia Lumia 610 will follow soon.
