Nokia Lumia 510 is a not so powerful cellphone released in 2012, which counts with a 4" multi-touch screen, a CPU ticking at 800 MHz and a 5 MP back side camera.

Nokia sells this cellphone with a good processing unit speeding at 800 megahertz, packed into the Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 MSM7227A chip and only 256 MB RAM memory. Graphic calculations usually uses lots of CPU time, so it also has an additional Adreno 200 (enhanced) GPU ticking at 200 megahertz to unload the processor. This cellphone comes with a 4 GB internal storage, a common amount but might be a bit scarce for some users considering it doesn't count with an SD extension slot to store additional apps and games, songs, photos, videos.

This time, it seems like Nokia forgot about weight optimization in this 4.55 oz cellphone. This cellphone is for sale in many color options like black, yellow, blue, red and white. This cellphone is very thin and comfortable, but it's not close to being one of the thinnest devices on sale, with a thickness of 0.45 inches.

Nokia designed the Lumia 510 with a good looking 4-inches screen, and a resolution of 800 x 480 , which makes it hard to distinguish the pixels composing the screen. This screen uses LCD capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

The Lumia 510 is equipped with only a 5 mega-pixels back side camera. This cellphone also shoots 640x480 VGA videos at 30 frames per second. Additionally, the camera includes a few interesting features: auto-focus, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization and geo tagging.

This phone has Wi-Fi capability (but it can't be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot) or the fastest 3G internet connection, using HSDPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a Micro SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

This phone also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (2.1, EDR), GPS Navigation and Near Field Communication (NFC), and some sensors likeLight Sensor, Proximity Sensor and Accelerometer.

The Nokia Lumia 510 features a medium 1300 mAh Li-Ion battery that provides this device a not very long battery duration. This phone has an aproximate 6.2 hs talk time and a 739 hours stand by time according to Nokia.

Nokia offers this cellphone for $ 139, which is quite a high price for comparing with other similar devices. If you buy the Nokia Lumia 510 you also receive Nokia Charging and Data Cable CA-190CD, Battery BP-3L and Product and Safety Information Booklet.
