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 [...]
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, [...]
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 [...]
In a utopic world where applications aren’t hacked and ported to other devices, Nokia differentiates its phones from the rest with the help of certain applications that come preinstalled, such as the Nokia Drive navigation software.
According to recent reports, Nokia is going to allegedly update Nokia Drive and make it able to completely offline navigation. Currently maps can be downloaded to the phone but the actual routing process still needs a connection. This might not be a problem while you’re driving in your own country but data roaming charges can be huge. A [...]
The Nokia Lumia 710 and the Lumia 800 Windows Phones will come preinstalled, among others, with the Nokia Music application. Espoo has updated the software even though the Lumia phones are just hitting shelves and meeting their new owners as we speak.
The new version of Nokia Music adds personalization features and improves the GigFinder functionality. You can now create personalized Radio stations for MixRadio by entering the names of three artists. MixRadio will then populate your playlist with music from and similar to those artists of your choice. GigFinder uses your [...]
While speaking at Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecoms Conference in Barcelona, Stephen Elop, CEO of Nokia, said that “in the early days our first competitors are the other ecosystems”. Elop also told Reuters that the pricing on the two Lumia devices launched is “so that that we can get what we think will be a good volume”.
Nokia is expecting sales volume to be a differentiator and competitive advantage of the company over the competition. However, Elop sees Nokia Windows Phones priced both lower and higher than current devices today. With [...]
On the 26th of last month Stephen Elop went on stage at Nokia World to announce the company’s first Windows Phones, the Nokia Lumia 710 and the Lumia 800. Nokia India’s Managing Director and Vice President for Sales for Mobile Phones, D. Shivakumar, recently went on stage in India to announce the two devices.
There were no changes made, both phones were announced as we already know them: the Lumia 710 in black and white with black, white, cyan, fuchsia and yellow back covers and the Lumia 800 in black, cyan and pink. They both come packed with Nokia Drive, Nokia Maps [...]

The inclusion of support for internet sharing over WiFi in Windows Phone Mango has become a real mixed blessing. Though we were excited to see the functionality built-in to the operating system, the unpredictable schedule by which manufacturers were releasing the required updates to enable the mode on first-wave Windows Phone hardware had us growing concerned with the fragmentation being introduced to the WP7 ecosystem. The good news is that we continue to see the release of these updates, and most existing hardware has been covered by now. As for future Windows Phone devices, since [...]
After Nokia announced the Lumia 710 and Lumia 800 Windows Phones together with their respective specs and availability regions plus dates, there were quite a few angry voices complaining about no American availability.
According to recent information the Nokia Lumia 710 will arrive to the U.S. market in January. T-Mobile will reportedly have the phone in its line-up with the codename “Sword”, available in both black and white variants. The phone (at least the European one) sports a Qualcomm MSM8255 1.4GHz processor, a 3.7-inch ClearBlack WVGA screen, 512MB RAM, 8GB [...]

Aside from the two Windows Phones made by Nokia there were plenty of other exciting news coming from the Nokia World event. We’ve seen Nokia navigation apps, its own music and radio app and we also hear EA Games will bring exclusives to the phones.
According to Barry Cottle, Executive Vice President and General Manager of EA Interactive, “this time, we’ll be designing our games for an awe-inspiring experience on Windows Phone for Nokia”. There will be 10 EA games, Chillingo titles as well as seven games from the Hasbro. “That’s the best games [...]
We know that American plans for Nokia-made Windows Phones are blurry and, to add to the mystery, Stephen Elop said the Nokia Lumia 800 will arrive to the U.S.A. in early 2012 but the Lumia 710 is wearing a “Coming Soon” label on the manufacturer’s internet page.
Following the source link you’ll land on the American website for Nokia and there you’ll see the Lumia 710 featured and “coming soon”. It is quite unclear exactly when in “early 2012” will Nokia Windows Phones hit the U.S. market or which models but the Lumia 710 [...]
Nokia product announcements for the Lumia 710 and Lumia 800 Windows Phone Mango handsets have gone over in a big way, dominating today’s headlines and generating a lot of buzz. It’s clear that Nokia is very interested in seeing its first WP7 efforts a success it certainly has enough at stake already releasing tons of content showing-off the pair of phones and their capabilities. We’re still taking it all in, while Nokia is one step ahead, starting what looks to be a very prominent advertising campaign for the Lumias, and helping to narrow-down when we could [...]
The expectations were very high regarding Nokia’s Windows Phones probably comparable to Apple’s next iPhone which turned out to be the 4S rather than the 5 and the shock waves are coming in after the official unveiling of the Nokia Lumia 710 and 800. Are the two Nokia Windows Phones really a disappointment?
Of course no manufacturer can please all the segments of a market that is so varied by definition. While some users want something in particular, others will most probably not like the manufacturer’s choice. That’s why we are lucky to have a [...]
The other Windows Phone from Nokia that was announced today, still in the Lumia family, is the 800’s little brother, the Lumia 710. It shares some of the specs with the 800, such as the processor and the amount of RAM but is a little bit shy on the camera specs, but of course of the price tag too.
You can get familiarized with the phone itself as well as the Nokia implementation of Windows Phone (plus the Nokia-specific navigation software bundled for free) by checking out the videos below.
