The company launched Nokia Lumia 800 and 900 recently and both these phones have attracted a lot of people towards them, particularly in Europe.
The Nokia 800 and 900 smartphones are relatively high end phones but the Finnish handset maker has been looking to target the low end market to help boost sales.
The company widened the range of its smartphone production, producing phones such as Lumia 610.
The Lumia 610 comes with an 800 MHz processor and just 256 MB RAM which isn’t quite enough and due to this very reason, it seems like the phone will not only be unable to support crucial applications such as Skype but various others too.
The new, low end phone has already started shipping across Europe and reportedly, several other applications have been restricted on the new phone.
Both Microsoft and Nokia announced that Skype will not work on Lumia 610 but now, we have found out that PES 2012, Angry Birds and Tango all are unable to install on the phone.
However, if you think that is all, it isn’t because there are other applications that the phone will not support. The list of applications that won’t work on the phone may include the official Google application.
Previously, Microsoft announced that 5 percent of the applications will not work on the Lumia 610 but up till now, it looks like the phone is rejecting every app; at least all the quality ones.
There are also problems in running applications that need lots of caching such as Nokia Maps and IMDB, as they seem to crash under load.
Even though the Nokia Lumia 610 is targeted towards the low end market, the fact that it won’t support quality applications, which is mostly why people get smartphones for, seems to sound troublesome for Nokia and Microsoft.
We’re not sure how well the phone will do in the market and if you were thinking about buying a Nokia Lumia 610, we’d recommend you to think again.
