Don't try installing Angry Birds or PES on your Lumia 610 Windows Phone

RAMmed

Product: Lumia 610 | Manufacturer: Nokia
 
Lumia 610 Windows Phone, thumbnail 1
As the old adage goes, 'you get what you pay for.' When that item you've just paid for is the new budget Lumia 610 Windows Phone from Nokia, you're getting a handset that's packing significantly less RAM than its bigger Lumia 800 and 900 brothers - 256MB compared to 512MB.

While Microsoft has said that 95 per cent of apps should still run on the more 'forgetful' phone, WM Phone Apps has discovered that some rather high-profile titles are part of the 5 per cent that don't run on the Lumia 610.

PES 2012 is one such title, although the 3D graphics do suggest it needs a phone that packs a fair punch to run it in the first place. What is surprising, however, is that Angry Birds and Skype also can't handle the lack of RAM in the Lumia 610.

This is the same Angry Birds that ran fine on the iPhone 3GS back in the day, despite Apple's third-generation blower packing the same RAM as the Lumia 610.

While you won't be able to play Rovio's smartphone classic on the Lumia 610, you will, at least, save a few hundred on the price of a phone.
