Nokia knew Windows Phone 7 was an update dead-end claim insiders

Nokia knew Windows Phone 7 was an update dead-end claim insiders

Nokia was fully aware of the update limitations of Windows Phone 7 when it signed up to use Microsoft's platform, insiders have suggested, and knew from the outset that early-adopters would not get WP8.

Nokia Lumia 610 Review

The Lumia 610 is an interesting entry into the Windows Phone family. Microsoft lowered the barrier to entry with an update to the OS, dubbed Tango/Refresh, allowing handsets with lesser specifications into the fray.

As a result, Nokia is hoping that the reduced cost of the handset will capture the entry-level market, and we imagine Microsoft will be keeping a close eye on the situation too. Does the 610 hit the mark? Find out after the jump.
