Nokia and T-Mobile appear to be on the verge of launching the Lumia 710 device in the U.S. next week.
T-Mobile sent invitations to press and analysts on Wednesday, hinting at a Windows Phone announcement with Nokia. Tmonews reports that a user guide for a T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 710 has been discovered at the FCC website in the United States. The user guide clearly shows a Lumia 710 with T-Mobile branding, all but confirming the launch next week. Nokia’s Lumia 710 device recently passed testing at the FCC and appears to be heading to T-Mobile. The device has been passed on the T-Mobile-unique 3G 1700 band, as well as 850 and 1900 GSM bands. This could indicate that T-Mobile is planning to stock the Lumia 710 in the coming months. Nokia introduced the Lumia 710 at its Nokia World event in October. The Nokia Lumia 710 will ship as an affordable Windows Phone in white and black colors. The back of the device has replaceable covers that will match the colors of Windows Phone.
Nokia previously listed the Lumia 710 on its U.S. pages earlier this year. The device was marked as “coming soon” and the FCC tests could indicate that it’s nearly ready for U.S. markets. The Nokia Lumia 710 includes the following specifications:
- 3.7-inch LCD ClearBlack Display
- 1.4 GHz single-core processor
- Exchangeable back covers
- 5 MP camera, auto-focus, LED flash
