nokia-lumia-505-telcelMexico’s Telcel is allegedly preparing to offer an exclusive Lumia device, but unfortunately it won’t come running Microsoft’s spiffy new Windows Phone 8. Instead, according to word on the street, the handset will come equipped with Windows Phone 7.8 — almost WP8 but not quite — and cater toward the low-end market. Reported specs include: 8-megapixel camera, 3.5 or 4-inch WVGA display, 800MHz single-core processor, 256MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage. Nothing is set in stone just yet, but a photo posted to Facebook teases that an announcement is coming soon.
