What a bad idea Nokia, i`m so disappointed and disgusted with Nokia lumia 610 which always run internet and update useless features and prohibiting people from benefiting from their networks special offers e.g(can`t excess *111# on vodacom and can`t excess cellphone banking)felt regretable.

it seems like most of people here havent use or exprienced Wp7 . i owned a android and symbian belle phone to be true guys just check wp7 first and then comment it . it is the most fluid os around with no lags and stuck ups and very smooth even on lumia 610 . while its not good that they havent supported skype on it that doesnt meean there any problem with WP7 . its very simple and unique and refreshing when you use it , there is nothing like it in market

This phone is very unrecommended. I would give them 1 over 10, whereas 0 is worst. It's slow, with very limited ability and very unresponsive. With the same price on Android, you can get a better phone with better experience. All you can get from this phone is beauty, but this phone is a no-brainer un-smart phone

Nokia and MS...they mentioned they really look at user experience. did they? or this is just another marketing stunt?
my opinion of Nokia Lumia 610 - slow, sluggish, and not worth buying, better spent the money somewhere else. Get an Android or iPhone 3GS, is still much better than this phone.

Symbian Belle versions like N8 and C7, also with 256 MB run Skype effortlessly, which means WP 7.x require too much resources.

What's with all that talk that Nokia choose Windows Phone to be unique?
That's not true!
With Android they could customize UI as they would prefer and be unique, but not with Windows Phone where every smartphone looks the same!

Obviously, the Finns do not want to upset the networks by packing Skype in...

Good job Nokia.
Better to drop all support for the Skype app then to have a poor user experience.

Does nokia think people are stupid?
Why iphone3gs could have skype while it has the cpu & RAM.
