What does it mean for Windows Phone that T-Mobile is already cutting the price of the Nokia Lumia 710
by 20%? And it wasn't like the original launch price was such a hardship, either. After a $10 haircut, the new price tag reads $39.99 (after a $50 rebate) with a signed 2-year pact. With the MWC coming in less than a month's time, the natural inclination is to think that the carrier is cleaning house before introducing a new model. But the rumored Nokia Lumia 900 variant
allegedly heading to T-Mobile, possibly the Nokia Lumia 910
, supposedly won't be available for the nation's fourth largest carrier until Q2.
When you think about what you are getting for just $39.99, it sounds like a great deal for those looking for an entry-level smartphone. The Nokia Lumia 710 offers a 3.7 inch, WVGA display with pixel density of 252ppi. A Qualcom MSM8255 single-corer 1.4GHz processor is under the hood with 512MB of RAM along for the ride. 8GB of native storage is onboard and on back is a 5MP AF camera with LED flash. The camera captures video at 720p (30fps). At the launch price, the Nokia Lumia 710 was considered a good deal; with a $10 haircut, it is now a 20% better one
