Nokia today announced the Nokia Lumia 710
will hit shelves, less than one month after the release of the Nokia Lumia 800.
The Nokia Lumia 710 will start selling today in Taiwan alongside the Nokia Lumia 800. The Nokia Lumia 710 will then reach stores in Singapore, Hong Kong, India and Russia in the next seven days and continue its global roll-out (including U.S.) over the coming weeks.
Estimated retail price is 270 EUR, excluding taxes and subsidies and availability will be via operator partners, retailers and open channels depending on local situation.
The Nokia Lumia 710 combines the social and Internet experience of Windows Phone with the ability to take pictures (5MP camera) in almost any conditions and share with friends in seconds, as well as access to apps, including exclusive Nokia services.
People Hub in Windows Phone displays all call, text, email and social network interactions with any individual contact in an integrated view, with the ability to group contacts and pin favourite groups and individuals to the start screen for live updates and easy access to the people who matter most.
Internet Explorer 9 and one-touch Bing search ensure fast internet browsing and the Nokia Drive delivers a personal navigation device (PND) with free, turn-by-turn navigation and dedicated in-car-user-interface.
Nokia Music introduces MixRadio, a free, global, mobile music-streaming application that delivers 100s of channels of locally-relevant music. Nokia Lumia users will also gain the ability to create personalized channels from a global catalogue of millions of tracks. Also integrated in Nokia Music is Gigfinder, providing the ability to search for live local music.
