T-Mobile makes its Lumia 710 official, coming January 11 for $50

T-Mobile officially made its announcement that Nokia’s Lumia 710 Windows Phone will be offered, making it the first U.S. carrier to offer Nokia’s new line of smartphones.

Lumia 710 will be available on T-Mobile from January 11 onwards for just $49.99 on contract. In its press release, the firm said that the mobile targets at the 150 million Americans who have not yet shifted to smartphone bandwagon. The price will tempt quite a few customers. It’s basically a cheaper alternative to the Lumia 800, Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone. Both the mobile features the same 3.7 inch display and 1.4GHz CPU. But Lumia 710 packs in less storage, i.e. 8 gigabytes, a lower quality 5-mega pixel camera. The battery span is also a bit less with 6.9 hours of 3G talk time. The 710’s rear covers will also be swappable, allowing you to mix and match your color scheme.

Nokia reported before two weeks that it has begun shipping the Lumia 710 to international markets, so it’s nice to see the phone available on T-Mobile in short order.

Smartphone lovers are still waiting to see when the Lumia 800 will reach these shores though, especially since it’s a particularly important device for both Nokia and Microsoft.

Nokia Starts Shipping Lumia 710 To Asia, Russia; Priced 270 Euros Without Taxes

Nokia on 9th December announced that it has started shipping its stylish, Windows Phone 7.5 Mango-powered smartphone Lumia 710 to customers in Taiwan (where it is sold alongside the Lumia 800).

Over next week, the mobile will be released across Singapore, Hong Kong, India and Russia. But still no other global roll-out information are announced for the time being. The retail price of the mobile is estimated as 270 euros. This excludes taxes and subsidies. Follows the original coverage when the Lumia phones were announced:

The 710 (formerly known as the Sabre) is the chunkier of the two, but that doesn’t mean it’s a slouch when it comes to hardware. It repackages the same 1.4GHz processor as seen in the Lumia 800, and pairs it with a 3.7-inch WVGA screen, and a 5-megapixel rear camera.

It’s meant to be Nokia and Microsoft’s effort to capture a more budget-conscious audience, and it’s heartening to see Nokia give it the same performance potential as their more premium offering.

Though the 710 only sports 8GB of internal storage, it beats out its brother by including a microSD card slot that can accept up to 16GB of additional flash storage. It also bears the distinction of being one of the few Windows Phone with physical navigation keys, which is sure to please fans of tactile feedback.

Expect to see it hit shelves in both stealth black and crisp white, with multiple colored backplates to please the chromatically indecisive.

On a sidenote: Nokia Lumia 800 has not received in good notes.
