Pushing the appeal of its Windows-powered smartphone devices, Finnish handset manufacturer Nokia has today announced its new ‘entry level’ Lumia 610 handset.

Expected to be formally rolled out during this week’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, the Lumia 610 will likely appeal as a mass-market option thanks to its accessible price of just $190 Euros.

As such, the Lumia 610 will pack a basic 800MHz processor, 256MBs of RAM, a rear-facing 5.0 mega-pixel camera, and the latest version of Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system (v7.5/Tango).

Although described by Nokia as “hugely important” in helping improve the scale and reach of its mobile business, the Lumia 610 will lack access to features such as Bing Local Scout and automatic SkyDrive uploads—apparently due to background data exchange limitations.

No further specification details have been released for the Lumia 610, but Nokia expects to have the device retail-ready during the second quarter of 2012.
