Nokia Lumia 710

As Nokia picks up its mojo from behind the sofa where it left it a couple of years back (at least), the mobile industry watches on to see if this Finnish fat cat can recapture the lost streak of daring-do that once propelled it to the top of the market. Can the sleeping giant do it?

Well, since October last year things have been looking up for Nokia. First it launched its Lumia 800 on the marketplace, and now the Lumia 710 is due for delivery to a shelf near you, some time in the first quarter. Any minute now…

 

The colourful, affordable Nokia Lumia 710 (estimated retail price is Euro 270, ex tax) is based on the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango release. It is designed to appeal to people with lively social lives who want an easy way to enjoy all the benefits of Windows Phone and access to signature Nokia experiences, including: People Hub in Windows Phone displays all call, text, email and social network interactions with any individual contact in an integrated view; faster, easier web browsing experience with Internet Explorer 9 and one-touch Bing search; and Nokia Drive delivers a fully fledged personal navigation device with free, turn by turn navigation and dedicated in-car user interface.

With a 5 megapixel camera, anyone can take pictures and share on social networks in seconds, even when the phone is locked. And it looks pretty, with a range of colours including white and black front finish and a choice of five interchangeable back covers available to purchase separately. Sure to go down well with the kids!
