Nokia has released a teaser video on YouTube that hints it will announce a smartphone with a high-end camera in the coming days. The video includes the tagline "Get Ready to Capture a Pure View" and shows a montage of images. At the same time, Reuters today reports that Nokia is prepared to also announce an inexpensive Windows Phone smartphone at its press conference scheduled for February 27. Reuters' sources say that the Lumia 610 will run Windows Phone, but can be sold at low pirce points. Reuters also notes that Nokia will announce a global variant of the Lumia 900, which is being released by AT&T later this year.
Nokia introduced the Lumia 610 today at Mobile World Congress, an entry-level Windows Phone that steps down the specs in favor of affordability.
The Lumia 900 is Nokia's most important smartphone launch ever. Microsoft and AT&T have a lot riding on this device, too, as its success will shape the future of Windows Phone in the US and beyond.
