Today, at Nokia World, Nokia's annual event for customers, partners and developers, the company also demonstrated its second smartphone in its Windows Phone-based Nokia Lumia range, the Nokia Lumia 710. Running Windows Phone 7.5, the Lumia 710 is powered by a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 single core CPU and supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE, triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/1900/2100 MHz as well as WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, aGPS and comes with the Windows Phone-typical sensors. The WVGA TFT touchscreen measures 3.7" and the 5 megapixel autofocus camera comes with a supporting flash LED and allows to record 720p HD videos up to 30 fps.
Including the 1300 mAh battery, the 710 measures 119 x 62.4 x 12.5 mm and weights 125.5 g. It comes with 512 MB RAM and 8 GB flash storage. The purposely built, no-nonsense Nokia Lumia 710 can be personalized with exchangeable back covers and thousands of apps to bring the Lumia experience to more people around the world. The Nokia Lumia 710 is designed for instant social & image sharing, and the best browsing experience with IE9. It is available in black and white with black, white, cyan, fuchsia and yellow back covers.
The Lumia 800 includes signature Nokia experiences optimized for Windows Phone, including Nokia Drive, which delivers a full-fledged personal navigation device (PND) with free, turn-by-turn navigation and dedicated in-car-user-interface; and Nokia Music introducing MixRadio, a free, global, mobile music-streaming application that delivers hundreds of channels of locally-relevant music. In an update delivered later this year, Nokia Lumia users will also gain the ability to create personalized channels from a global catalogue of millions of tracks. Also integrated in Nokia Music is Gigfinder, providing the ability to search for live local music for a complete end-to-end music experience, as well as the ability to share discoveries on social networks and buy concert tickets also coming in the Nokia Music software update delivered later this year.
The estimated retail price for the Nokia Lumia 710 will be approximately 270 Euro, excluding taxes and subsidies and is expected to be available end of this year.
