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.

They have to start cheap because they really have no other choice for a way to compete at this point... hopefully that improves in the future for them. However, it is generally true that you get what you pay for...

Don't mind starting cheap but start it at ATT or Verizon. Tmo already shafted their WP customers not having true upgrade to HD7.

I'll settle for a better quality radar for $50 more but stay with my hd7 until tmo can offer something better than the 710.

this is a great starter smart phone for People who want to go up from a plan cell phone and you change the color of the back of this phone to make it look better or match what you are wearing. The black body with a blue or racer yellow is cool looking. a white body with a pink back is cool for girls

You don't have iPhones on T-Mobile, so Windows Phone is the obvious choice as their are no real contenders.

Good starter phone but T-Mobile definatly need a v2 (i.e released after Mango) Windows Phone with more than 8GB memory and > 3.7" screen. This and the HTC Radar will compete nicely though but a Lumia 800/900/HTC Titan like device will be needed for those who want to move up in the Windows Phone world.
