Nokia doesn’t have many Windows Phone devices. In fact, its first one, the Nokia Lumia 800 only hit the market recently. Well, it looks like the phone isn’t going to be so lonely anymore. Nokia has announced that starting today, the Nokia Lumia 710, which was unveiled at the same time as the Lumia 800, will be available for purchase. The phone will be available in select countries (US still yet to be determined, but we’ll probably find out after the T-Mobile/Nokia event) starting with Taiwan today.
Other countries that will be selling the device include Singapore, Russia, Hong Kong and India. Let’s hope it won’t take too long to reach our shores. Specs of the Lumia 710: 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor, Adreno 205 GPU, 512MB of RAM, 3.7″ 800 x 480 display, 8GB of internal storage, 5-megapixel rear camera, Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango), 3G HSPA+ connectivity, and a 1,300mAh battery.
Designed for the low-end market, don’t expect this Windows Phone to cost a bomb when it hits our retail outlets.
