In January, I obtained a Nokia 610. I was extremely hesitant to switch over to it because I love my Nexus S phone and I'm big on Android phones. My Nexus S phone is becoming dated and the low ram amount(350mb roughly) is starting to take it's toll. So yesterday, I decided to purchase a micro-sim card and make the switch.

Aside from getting used to the layout, the phone has impressed me. For what it is, it's very simple and easy to navigate. The social networking options on the phone is nice and the app selection isn't half bad.

Overall, I'm quite happy with this phone and will stick with it for a bit, at least until I purchase the Samsung Galaxy S2X.

Imagine how much you'd like the new generation of WP devices. I still use my Lumia 800 from time to time - love that phone, especially after the WP7.8 update.

How'd it go? I'm getting a bit sick of waiting for the official update for mine...

When will the 7.8 update for the Lumia 610 be available. My phone still says no updates found.

I did mine manually here--> http://forum.xda-developers.com/showt...
Including download time, installing drivers & flashing, the whole process was surprisingly fast at under 30mins!

Keep in mind though that since there's no official release for Koodo yet those are from other regions so will be locked to specific other carriers. To get around the lock, I entered the code I had bought last year to unlock it from Koodo. It works for the life of the device since it's for the IMEI # so any version you install it'll work.
