Nokia Lumia 730 rumored to be the Windows Phone Tango poster child, skimping on ClearBlack and polycarbonate
Lumia 710 is the current entry level Nokia Windows Phone, but rumors from the Chinese tech blog wilderness pinpoint a lower-end model, the Lumia 730 to take that crown come MWC in two weeks.

The new handset will allegedly be the poster child for the Tango update, which will reportedly allow for phones with lower screen resolutions and as little as 256MB of RAM to run Windows Phone Tango just fine.

Adding a bit of credibility to this rumor is the fact that the Nokia Lumia 730 is said to dispose of the ClearBlack display technology and the polycarbonate chassis of the Lumia 710, again presumably to bring the cost down. 

Also, the navigation buttons below the screen are reportedly capacitive now, like on the Lumia 800.

A combined CDMA/LTE connectivity is rumored to be onboard, as well as 8MP camera, which don't really jibe with the phrase "entry level", but if Nokia has managed to include those, and still keep the price rock bottom, the Lumia 730 has every chance to succeed, regardless if we are going to see it in the US, or if it will be geared initially towards the EMEA market, like the source suggests.
