It seems ages ago since Nokia first revealed the Lumia 710 and 800 Windows Phone devices. The higher spec Lumia 800 model has been available for a while now but the Lumia 710 has yet to release in the UK, even though the device is already available in the US. Now today we have news of the Lumia UK release date.
The lower spec handset will join the more expensive Lumia 800 as the company attempts to claim back some of the market share it has lost to Android and the iPhone. Now Nokia UK have said the cheaper of the two devices will launch in the UK during February according to a report on SlashGear.
As a recap the Lumia 710 features a 3.7-inch WVGA screen and is available in a choice of six different colors, and comes running the Windows 7.5 Mango operating system. It also has a five mega pixel camera with HD video capture and 8GB of on board storage.
It is powered by a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm processor with 512 MB of RAM, and also features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a USB port amongst its features. The tile based interface of the handset allows user’s access to Facebook and Twitter, and users can personalize apps that are downloaded from the Windows Phone Marketplace by switching the back plate.
The manufacturer has also said that before the UK launch the device will be hitting markets in Russia and Hong Kong. The Nokia Lumia 710 is most likely to offer competition to the cheaper end of the Android platform, and older versions of the iPhone that are still available.
