Nokia Lumia 710 starts shipping, hitting various local markets within a week
Nokia’s second Windows Phone, the Lumia 710, doesn’t have the impressive design of the Lumia 800, but comes at a noticeably lower price tag and promises the same rock solid Windows Phone experience. And now, it’s shipping to stores in select markets, but sadly this doesn’t yet include the US. 

The Lumia 710 will hit shelves in Taiwan today and within a week it’s set to arrive in Singapore, Hong Kong, India and Russia with a retail price of around $360 (270 euro).

The second Nokia Windows Phone comes with almost identical hardware as the Lumia 800 - it has a 3.7-inch WVGA display, a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 512MB of RAM. It does however offers plenty of color options with exchangeable back covers.

If you’ve been waiting for Windows Phone stateside, good news is that the Nokia Lumia 710 is expected to land soon on T-Mobile as more and more leaked evidence suggests that. T-Mobile announced an event in New York next week that could bring us this exact smartphone, so stay tuned.

I just hope the 5MP stills are good and it has continuous auto-focus when recording

I still don't see why they couldn't have added an NFC chip, and then enable it when Windows Phone does support it. I mean some cheap Symbian phones have it, although not such a big deal. And it seems that the Nokia 701 is actually better than this in terms of design and build quality. The Lumia 710 is all plastic and a bit on the chubby side, while the 701 is slimmer and has more metal. It also has an IPS display(although lower resolution) which is much better than the plain old TFT of the 710.
AND the 701 has better battery life, a ffc, a memory card slot...
Sorry, but its obvious Nokia could have tried a little bit harder...especially since its one of their first Windows smartphones.
Maybe they should lower the price to $300.

It might be a normal TFT LCD but it still has ClearBlack technology, also battery life is better on Symbian phones in general than the rest. Don't forget that the 701 has a fixed focus camera.
