    When we get to see a leaked release roadmap from a carrier, sometimes the information it contains isn't very precise. It may represent some long-term plans for the carrier, and the arrival of certain models may not be placed with any more certainty than the month, or even the quarter, when that hardware's expected. We find ourselves in very much the opposite boat here today, with a T-Mobile roadmap providing some very precise release dates, but not naming the phones in question. According to this find, here's the release schedule T-Mobile's expecting for Q1: January 11: one device January ...

    Back in April 2011 CNN announced its Android client for those rocking a Google-powered smartphone that want to always be connected to the news. Nine months later, CNN announces its Windows Phone application, taking heavy advantage of the Metro design guidelines. The Windows Phone CNN app "will provide the latest news and video from CNN's reporting around the globe". Besides the panoramic structure, the application will fully support Windows Phone Mango, users being able to pin sections of the software to Home Screen. Real-time news updates will be shown on the app's Live Tile and, "for the ...

    You may have already seen some new commercials from T-Mobile that feature the new Nokia Lumia 710, but now Nokia is advertising their first Windows Phone in the U.S. as well. The new commercial reminds us of the style that Apple has used with their iPhone ads. You've got a big hand holding the phone while a soft male voice tells you about it in a conversational manner. Nokia uses a slightly more interesting animated backdrop however, and also decides to reveal the meaning of life. Do you think this will help more people become aware of Windows Phone? Is that the same hand model from the ...

    Nokia is not only trying to differentiate itself from the competition in Windows Phone-land by creating designs like the Lumia 800 or 900 but they also bundle titles with their phones which enrich the user experience of a Lumia owner. Stephen Elop, while on stage at CES talking about the new Lumia 900, said that Nokia Lumia owners will get first access to games made by EA. The idea is reflected in the press release for the AT&T Lumia too, where the Nokia-EA partnership will "bring over 20 of the world's most popular games to the Windows Phone marketplace, coming first to Nokia Lumia ...

    Nokia and T-Mobile launched the Lumia 710 back in December of last year when they said it will be available starting January 11, which is today. Stephen Elop referred to the device, carrier and date several times while on stage at CES and, as promised, the phone is now available. It comes in white and black flavors, both going for $49.99 on a two-year contract. According to the CEO of Nokia, the Lumia 710 is targeted for those consumers that didn't make the jump to a smartphone, by delivering a great build quality with a fresh, fun and revolutionary platform. As a reminder, the Lumia 710 ...

    After the Nokia event in Las Vegas where Stephen Elop proudly announced the first Nokia LTE Windows Phone, the Lumia 900, the first ever Windows Phones from the manufacturer will be coming to Canada as part of the Espoo-based company's plans to re-enter the North American market. Current and future subscribers of Rogers Canada will be able to choose the Nokia Lumia 710 (in February for $49 on contract) -- which in also on T-Mobile in the U.S. (on January 11 for $49.99 on a two-year contract) -- while those on TELUS Canada will have the opportunity to grab the Nokia Lumia 800 (available in ...

    Looks like Nokia didn't forget about Canada when it decided to come to America with its Lumia 710, which is expected on T-Mobile's network towards the middle of the month. According to recent reports, the younger (and to some, the uglier) brother of the Lumia 800 will be Canada's first Nokia Windows Phone. And, since they're already treating the two markets in a similar way, it's just normal that the Nokia Lumia 900 (aka Ace) flagship will be heading up north too. We're yet to find out details related to exact pricing, availability and carriers but according to MobileSyrup, first choice ...

    Nokia is expected to launch (at least) the Lumia 900 Windows Phone on AT&T, often referred to as the "Ace", at the upcoming CES in Las Vegas. Together with the Lumia 710 on T-Mobile, it will represent Nokia's Windows Phone attack on the U.S. market. But what comes after the Lumia 900/Ace? Nokia will already have three Windows Phones out there (together with the Lumia 710 and the Lumia 800). According to a recent report -- treat this accordingly --, Tango-powered phones should follow soon. The Windows Phone Tango update will be able to bring lower-spec'ed devices to the market, hopefully ...

    Windows Phone fans in the US are understandably excited about the Lumia 710's rapidly-nearing debut on T-Mobile. With the 800 still waiting in the shadows, the 710 will be the first chance Americans get to check out a Nokia Windows Phone device. If you were hoping to get your hands on one early, we saw one lucky owner put a single 710 up on eBay near the end of last month; unfortunately, the auction was stopped before it had a chance to run its course. While we may all have to keep waiting until January 11 for some access to the 710, it looks like T-Mobile is in full-swing of getting ready ...

    Nokia entering the Windows Phone game, while waved-off by some, is applauded by many and the first two devices to come from the Espoo-based company running the Redmond-made platform are enjoying great popularity and feedback from the market. However, by the time Nokia Windows Phones reach the Chinese market -- which recently became the largest mobile market on the planet -- in the second half of 2012, the Finnish phone maker will be definitely facing fierce competition. Windows Phones made by prestigious manufacturers like Samsung and HTC will give Nokia a hard time on the market. These ...

    The second week of January is the timeframe to look for if you are interested in the Nokia Lumia 710 on T-Mobile; the phone already popped up on the carrier's website wearing a "coming soon" tag but if you just can't wait two more weeks you might be able to score the first Nokia Windows Phone on T-Mobile. Currently at $340 and climbing, there's one certain Lumia 710 on eBay. It seems to be the real thing and, if you take a closer look at the official T-Mobile packaging, you'll see that the phone will come with ESPN and The Weather Channel apps preinstalled. The phone features a 1.4GHz ...

    Speaking of Windows Phone devices with LTE, it looks like Nokia is poised to launch a device called the Ace in March on AT&T running on LTE. According to Paul Thurrott, who tends to have a good handle on all things Microsoft, the Ace will be launched at CES and will indeed be part of a trio of launch devices for Windows Phone on LTE, also including that HTC Radiant and Samsung Mandel we posted about earlier. Paul also notes that Verizon will be getting the Lumia 710, but without LTE. Via: The Verge Source: WinSuperSite

    According to different reports, Nokia is pushing out several updates for its dedicated navigation application shipping on all Windows Phones made by the Espoo-based company. We are expecting offline navigation to be included but the first minor update doesn't seem to bring it. It looks like there is an update which bumps the version numbers to 1.1.0.1584 and there is also an update which is numbered 1.5.0.0. We are still waiting for that full offline support but if you have a Nokia Windows Phone and got one update or even both, let us know in the comments if you notice anything major. ...

    You'll have to wait less than two weeks, until January 11, to grab a Nokia Lumia 710 from T-Mobile. The phone was announced by the Espoo-based phone-maker together with the Magenta carrier on December 15 and, with just a little bit more to go, the phone appeared online with the carrier wearing a "coming soon" label. The Lumia 710 sports a 1.4GHz processor, five-megapixel camera, 3.7-inch WVGA screen with ClearBlack technology and runs Windows Phone Mango. It will go for $49.95 on a two-year contract and will be hopefully the first of many Nokia Windows Phone on the American market. It's ...

    Windows Phone users know this from the very early days: OEMs have special categories in the Windows Phone Marketplace where they aggregate applications and goodies for users of their phones. LG, Samsung and HTC all have their own Marketplace categories and now Nokia has secured its own, called Nokia Collections. Nokia Windows Phone owners no longer have to search for apps released by Espoo; instead, when opening the Marketplace, there should be a special category where all device/make-specific software should be found. The images above are reportedly snapped off of the French Marketplace ...

    Yesterday, Nokia announced their first Windows Phone to be available in the U.S.A. on T-Mobile and they held a little launch party in New York City where we got to preview some of the devices. The Lumia 710 will be available in January for only $49 with a 2 year contract, so it's certainly not intended to be the premiere high-end flagship smartphone, but it could be quite enjoyable for many people who may not need all the high-end hardware features... or really like to change their phone colors. It feels quite nice in the hand due to it's curved back battery cover and soft-touch plastic. ...

    Over the last couple weeks, there's been plenty of speculation about launch plans for the Nokia Lumia 710, especially when it came to the phone's arrival on T-Mobile in the US. We heard non-specific mentions of an early 2012 release, and then caught our first look at the phone with T-Mobile badging (even if just a line-art render) when it put a stop in at the FCC. It wasn't long after that when we uncovered the first press shot of the phone as it would arrive on the carrier. Invitations distributed for a joint Nokia and T-Mobile event scheduled for this evening had us hoping we'd finally ...

    Watch this week's Windows Phone View as we wrap-up all this week's good and bad inside the world of Microsoft's Windows Phone platform. In today's show we begin by talking about the launch of the Nokia Lumia 710. We later cover why we know that T-Mobile will be the first US Carrier to sell it. In our week's coverage we go through Adam's recent Xbox LIVE game review and Dan Webster's Window's Phone App Round-up. We then talk about the possibility of NFC on current Windows Phone handsets, and we end the good section with some talk about Windows Phone Towers instead of phones. In the Bad ...

    Having been tipped by Nokia itself in an FCC filing -- and confirmed last week by The Verge -- it's really no surprise that T-Mobile will be launching the Lumia 710 at an event on Wednesday. Yet with the lower-end of Nokia's two Windows Phone debuts still offering plenty of sex appeal, we'll gladly take another look or two, especially when a US carrier has its branding prominently displayed. T-Mobile will offer the Lumia 710 in both its black and white color SKUs, along with the interchangeable back covers. The 3.7-inch, Mango-powered 710 should be the first, but certainly not the last, ...

    Nokia announced the Lumia 710 on October 26 together with the Lumia 800 but unlike it's bigger brother, the Lumia 710 didn't get that much attention from Espoo until recently. However, the Finnish phone-maker announced that the Nokia Lumia 710 is now shipping in Taiwan. The next week should see the phone reach shelves in Singapore, Hong Kong, India and Russia and then continue its global roll-out over the coming weeks. As a reminder, the Lumia 710 -- which we expect to land on T-Mobile on December 14 -- features a Qualcomm MSM8255 1.4GHz processor, a 3.7-inch ClearBlack WVGA screen, 512MB ...

    The December 14 joint T-Mobile-Nokia event will most probably bring the Lumia 710 to the U.S. -- as the phone's manual over at FCC seems to hint -- but so far we've received no official wording from either the carrier or the phone maker. According to the image above, T-Mobile is emphasizing on accessories for the Lumia 710 which by itself isn't such groundbreaking information but it might be the first official hint that the Lumia 710 will be part of the event. Of course, we'd be as happy as you if the Lumia 710 would be accompanied by at least another Windows Phone (though the chances of ...

    If you had your doubts about the Nokia Lumia 710 coming to the U.S. on T-Mobile as the Sword (after seeing those coming soon labels on the American website) the December 14 event invitation should clear those up. To further clarify things, there's a user manual available over at FCC. This certain manual contains vectors of a Nokia Lumia 710 featuring T-Mobile branding, as you can see in the image above. We now know at least one thing that's going to be unveiled at the joint T-Mobile-Nokia event next week but, as usual, we wouldn't mind it to be just one of many (at least two, please). To ...

    While the Nokia Lumia 800 has been stealing the spotlight, the manufacturer recently turned its attention to promoting the 710, in anticipation of its wide release. Just when will the phone be available where? The Windows Phone handset had been marked as "coming soon" on Nokia's US site, and while it was initially supposed to have its UK debut in November, those plans have been put on-hold. A couple of new finds may just shed some light on the 710's story. In the UK, retailer Digital-phone.co.uk has updated its page for the Lumia 710 to show the phone's availability as beginning on January ...

    The Nokia Lumia 710 is just as much of a Windows Phone as the Lumia 800, just that the latter is regarded as currently being the flagship phone. However, Nokia has started promoting the Lumia 710 too, ending the apparent ad-monopoly in favor of the 800. You'll see the same "amazing everyday" theme on the Lumia 710 ad, which you've seen on the N9's Windows Phone brother. The 710 packs a Qualcomm MSM8255 1.4GHz processor, a 3.7-inch ClearBlack WVGA screen, 512MB RAM, 8GB storage, five-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, WLAN 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, A-GPS, micro-USB connector and ...

    It is well-known that Compal Communications is manufacturing Windows Phones for Nokia and Acer; we knew that since the company officially became Windows Phone 7 ODM back in June. Now, according to recent reports, Compal is increasing shipments and it can be mainly due to Nokia. After shipping initial Windows Phones to Nokia back in September, the total number of units shipped from January through September was at 2.1 million. The company is expected to ship over 600,000 handsets in November compared to 200,000 delivered last month. While the exact numbers for the fourth quarter of the year ...
