Finnish manufacturer Nokia is looking to return to some of its former glories in the coming months after losing market share to the iPhone and Android platforms. To achieve this it is hoping the Windows Phone platform will once again make its handsets more desirable to consumers. Now we have news of a possible UK release date for the Nokia Lumia 710.
The company’s flagship device the Lumia 800 has been available for a while now, but according to T3.com its lower specified sibling the Lumia 710 could be hitting UK stores on January 6th 2012. While the Lumia 800 gets a software update to fix some battery life issues, those who are looking for something a bit cheaper may consider the Lumia 710.
Nokia have yet to reveal an official release date for the handset but online retailer Digitalphone have begun listing the device. It is now amongst their ‘coming soon’ section of their website, and states the handset will be available within the first week in January.
It is most likely to mean the 6th for the launch timeframe and comes just two days before CES 2012 is due to begin. Just to remind you the Lumia 710 will come with a rear mounted 5-megapixel camera and a series of interchangeable fascias. It will be running the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system powered by a 1.4GHz single-core Snapdragon processor.
You also have a 3.7-inch ClearBlack display and the device is capable of 720p video capture and 512MB of RAM. Will you be considering the Nokia Lumia 710?
