Nokia announced on Friday that it is now shipping its second Windows Phone, the Lumia 710.
The Lumia 710 is available in Taiwan today and will become available in Singapore, Hong Kong, India and Russia over the next seven days. Nokia says the device will roll out globally in the coming weeks. The retail price in Europe is 270 EUR. Nokia is expected to announce the Lumia 710 on T-Mobile USA on December 14. T-Mobile and Nokia are both holding a press conference that hints at a Windows Phone announcement. A user guide for a T-Mobile branded Lumia 710 was also discovered earlier this 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.
The Nokia Lumia 710 includes the following specifications:
- 3.7-inch LCD ClearBlack Display
- 1.4 GHz single-core processor
- Exchangeable back covers
