Here’s some more pricing and availability news from the fall out of the Mobile World Congress, we’ve just reported to you Amazon’s asking fee and release date for HTC’s super-phone, the One X and now there comes news of Nokia’s offerings, the 808 Pureview and Lumia 610 – also a rough scheduling for the Lumia 900.
Unlocked-Mobiles.com is a UK-based retail website, which offers SIM free deals on a range of handsets out there on the mobile market and this is the source of a release date and price for the Nokia 808 Pureview, which boasts an absolutely ridonkulous 41-megapixel shooter, which would make the N8’s 12-megger blush. It also features Carl Zeiss lens (often used from microscopy) and a 4X “lossless zoom” that we imagine could pick up a flea on a dog’s back from 20 paces! The 808 also comes with Full HD 1080p quality video and CD quality sound recording (see our MWC coverage article for more). Unlocked-Mobiles list this multimedia capturing titan at a reasonable £464.98 with a shipping date of April 24th.
Joining in is MWC running buddy the Nokia Lumia 610 – a lower-end Windows Phone device with 800MHz CPU, 256MB of RAM, 5-megapixel camera and new OS upgrade Tango added to its humble arsenal (more details in our MWC coverage article). Coming in at just £164.98 through UM, the 610 offers another inexpensive alternative to the popular Lumia 800 model and rivalling the respectable ZTE Tania – which also finds its spot in the sub-£200 Windows Phone market.

So, what of the Nokia Lumia 900? The when and how much is still pretty vague on this one, but a rough indication has become available through the Carphone Warehouse – which in its “Coming Soon” section features the 1.4GHz CPU, 4.3” displayed Windows smartphone as “Expected June 2012”.
The Carphone Warehouse has updated its website to now show the phone as expected in May, shifting a month forward from the previously expected June launch.
