Nokia Lumia 710 is official: affordable Windows Phone
The Nokia Lumia 710 is the second Nokia Windows Phone and what makes it different is its affordability paired with nearly the same guts as the Nokia Lumia 800. The Lumia 710 also comes with a 3.7" ClearBlack display with a resolution of 480x800 pixels, exchangeable back covers for distinct looks, but the body itself will come in black and white.

So what's in there for you with the new Lumia 710? The phone comes with a Snapdragon MSM8255 chip with the processor clocked at 1.4GHz, but you also have hardware acceleration and the very same GPU as the one in the Lumia 800. The handset isn't too thick, but it's not too thin either at 0.49" (12.5mm), while its weight stands at 4.43 ounces (125.5 grams). 

In the photographic department, you're treated with a 5-megapixel camera capable of capturing 720p videos at 30fps.

Nokia Lumia 710 price is set at the relatively affordable $375 (270 euro). 

The Lumia 710 release date is set to about the end of the year in select markets: Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan first, but it will also land on different market in early 2012. That's when we expect to see Nokia's lineup appear stateside as well. So how do you like the new Nokia family?

Oh its probably the screen, its not using amoled, also it may have a cheaper camera..? along with its lower quality build is probably why its cheaper.

Nice. First phone to use the light theme(white background) and not look ugly.

I like it but by the time it makes it to the US it will be practically obsolete
