The Nokia Lumia 610 is now available from TELUS. The budget friendly Lumia 610 runs Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, and features an 800 MHz Snapdragon CPU, 8GB of storage, HSPA support, and a 3.7 inch display at 252 PPI. You can get it at TELUS for $0 on a three term on any rate plan.

We've been using the Lumia 610 for a couple days, and it feels like a decent device for any price point. While it doesn't come with the sleek unibody design of the Lumia 800 and 900, it has a spacious touch screen and up-to-date internals to provide a solid Windows Phone experience for the entry-level market. We'll post a full review in the coming days.
