The cheapest Lumia handset, Nokia Lumia 610 will sport a interesting flip-to-mute feature

The Windows Phone 7.5 powered Nokia Lumia 610 will include a flip-to-mute feature.

This exciting feature will enable users to silence a incoming call by simply flipping the device over on the surface. If this feature sounds familiar, that is because it is. HTC has similar kind of feature for its devices.

While the feature performs the same function, there is a difference. Windowsphonedaily points out that, 'while for the HTC devices it goes through their external Attentive Phone application -- by contrast this new feature seems to be baked in (for Nokia Lumia 610).'

There is a strong possibility that this feature will be extended to other Lumia handsets as well.

Apart from this feature, Tango MMS updates and other already known details were also revealed in Nokia's Lumia 610 manual (via FCC).

Priced at EUR189, approximately Rs 12,471, Lumia 610 is touted as the 'cheapest' and 'best' smartphone coming from the Nokia stable.

The beautifully crafted smartphone sports a 3.7-inch WVGA TFT LCD, 5-megapixel camera and provides connectivity options through microUSB port, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1.

The device will be the perfect choice for those looking to taste the Windows at a budget price.
