Nokia is apparently getting set to launch another entry level Windows Phone handset, this time known as the Lumia 510, as two leaks relating to the phone have emerged online this month.

TechRadar reports that the handset will not run the new Windows Phone 8 operating system, but will instead use version 7.8, which has the same updated Start screen that can fit in more Live Tiles, but will miss out on many of the other new features.

It will have a four inch touchscreen display, a single core processor and 256MB of RAM, along with just 4GB of internal storage space.

However, Nokia will reportedly be selling the Lumia 510 for as little as 90, which would make it one of the cheapest Windows Phone devices on the market.

So far, Microsoft has only dipped its toes into the lower end of the smartphone price scale, but it looks like Nokia is getting ready to plunge in head first.

It is thought that the Lumia 510 will be made available in China, before a wider international release, which is unsurprising, as its low asking price makes it ideal for sale in an emerging mobile market.
