T-Mobile is bringing the Nokia Lumia 710 to its lineup for a mere $49 on-contract
So the lid has been blown as to what T-Mobile and Nokia will be showing off at their event later on tonight in New York City. Not surprisingly, the carrier is bringing aboard the Nokia Lumia 710 to its lineup, but more importantly, its pricing is single-handedly the most standout feature.

Essentially, T-Mobile will be selling the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango powered Nokia Lumia 710 for a mere $49.99 with your signature on a 2-year agreement. Come to think about it, that’s not too shabby at all – plus, it falls at a lower price point than the currently available HTC Radar 4G. As a whole, this T-Mobile version doesn’t appear to be any different from the international version, well, except for the T-Mobile branding it’ll be flaunting obviously.

However, it’s going to be packed to the brim with some of the carrier’s very own branded applications – such as T-Mobile Live TV and MyAccount. Meanwhile, Nokia’s presence will be in full display as well on the software side with apps like the ESPN Sports hub and Nokia Drive. As for the hardware, it remains intact with features such as a 3.7” WVGA ClearBlack display, 1.4GHz single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, 720p video recording, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, GPS, and HSPA Category 10.

Fortunately, you’ll have the option of choosing between black and white versions of the handset. So how about a release date? Well, don’t expect to be gifting this one to a loved one this holiday season seeing that it won’t become available for purchase until next year – January 11th to be specific.
