Do any of the Nokia Lumia lower cost phones run Skype?
Will the Lumia 510 run it now?
Any other options for a windows phone device that CAN run Skype over wifi?
Need this for someone who doesnt want to spend too much money but needs a gsm phone that is unlocked (will use several non-US sim cards)

about 175 is the price they are willing to pay.
the 710 seems like a good choice as amazon is showing around that price....
how is the battery life and overall performance?
is it a hassle to take photos off the phone?
im thinking of the simplicity factor for this person...

ok, so i am adding a question to this after i thought i had a winner...
take a photo, try to share it via bluetooth - is that possible?
im seeing conflicting info on the web and the search function on wpcentral is not at all useful.

yeah avoid the 510 and 610. I dunno why those even exist. at this stage of the hardware cycle it cant possibly be expensive to manufacture a 710 caliber smartphone.
the 710's the best bet, its pretty much a cheaper 800 (same internals, less storage, not as fancy packaging, smaller battery)
Battery life...imo kind of sucks. but its a 1300mah battery. I barely get by 8hrs.
They can be had cheap, i got mine for 120 on kijiji when most of the lower cost ones were going for at least 150-170 (at the time, this was several months ago).
