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.
