      I do not know, it looks kind of trashy cheap to me, you know the kind of phone a single chick with 3 kids from 3 different dudes talking on while paying for her groceries with welfare.

      Yes. It surprises me how many people on welfare have such nice smartphone.

    270 euros, cheap as chips as well

    I hope the screen isn’t too small to use! And the price on a contract is something to rival other companies like HTC.

    Do these have front facing camera’s?

    • Ham

      sadly, no.

    What a wasted  opportunity.. 3.7 ” and 3 apps ? Definitely not buying .. Anything below 4″ is not for me

      Things that are at 3.5~3.8 screen will have superb screen at amazing 300++ ppi with Nokia’s AMOLED technology.

      That’s what she…. oh nevermind

      Remember these phones are to be released in Europe. FFC have never caught on in Europe; it’s not a popular feature there. You do know they will definitely put FFC on the American version of this device, after all it would be great for women to touch up their makeup and pluck their eyebrows (An accident waiting to happen; along with driving while texting…since carriers will charge you to use the voice-to-text featurs currently included in mango….some people can’t afford to pay the extra costs, so they will continue to do things that put people in danger).

      I live in Europe and although I never used used my FFC in my previous phones its something I want to see in a a phone.. every current smartphone has it .. why not this one?

    • OMG55

      Yeah, your probably a pay-as-you-go customer who doesn’t even have a smartphone; what did people not understand about these are to be released in Europe.

    so let me get this straight, they put the front facing camera on the cheaper device and not on the flagship lumia 800. I really dont get that decision at all

    • http://twitter.com/OldCongress Gamer

      The 800 does have front facing camera too

    • Seth_p

      No where did they indicate front-facing camera for this model.

    • Guest

      look at the upper left corner … *sigh*

    • BucksterMcgee

      Those would be the Proximity sensor and ambient light sensor. No front facing cameras. Sorry.

  • Joel Job

    Nice phone for the wife. I would like something more powerfull and with a bigger screen.

      what about the nokia lumia 800

    • Brad

      It’s interesting you say something more powerful. I’d imagine you’re talking about the processor. There are no WP 7 devices with dual core processors and there’s a simple reason for that – it doesn’t need it. WP 7 is light enough that it works best with a single core rather than a dual, unlike Android and iOS (iPhone). This also means it saves you loads of battery power, which can be a big problem with some of the newer Androids.

    Cool that the old school Nokia “change” colour skin theme is back, and for there smartphones this time. Kind of missed that in this segment.
    Now however I will have to sit down and wait here in Sweden to next year to have late Christmas. Interesting that Scandinavia have to wait along side with US. But then again, we have tons of phones ready, Asia and Russia etc is a smart move to build fundation and make WP7 platform more solid.

    I like the yellow one!

    Check http://www.nokia.co.uk/gb-en/products/phone/lumia710/specifications/ - no description of FF camera and no mention of Panorama view, c’mon Nokia this is not what we expected on a launch of arrival of NextGen Phones. You could’ve done much much better than this.

    I prefer under 4″.  The last thing I want is to carry some clunky big screen in my pocket.  If my focus was 3.7″ it would be perfect.

      you make it too easy, but I don’t want to get banned…

  • OMG55

    While I understand that these devices are to be release in Europe…..This is never racking to wait and be patient with Christmas just around the corner. I’m in America and would love to buy myself an early Christmas present fromme-to-me (A new phone feature…ha ha)……All I want for Christmas is a new Nokia device with FFC camera & at least 4″ screen althought that 3.8 look pretty good.

    To everyone hating on the 710, you are surely not part of the target audience for this product… I’m sure if you could you would ask Nokia to make a phone just for you. If you do not like it, don’t buy it! Don’t come here and trash the damn thing… I know many people who are already considering this device…

    • Joe_HTH

      They look kind of dated, like Nokia 1997… maybe the target audience is middle age cougars feeling nostalgic :(

  • Kenie343

    That’s the thing techies do not get. Everyone is not into technology like we are!!! In fact, Im ready to bet that the majority of the people are not techies!
