Towards the end of last year Nokia lunched its flagship Lumia 800 smartphone in the UK for the consumer to enjoy. Early feedback from users and reviewers alike have been pretty positive so far, and today we have news of its cheaper sibling the Lumia 710 and its price as the device lands in the UK.
Just to recap the cheaper of the Lumia models currently available features the single core Qualcomm MSM8255 1.4GHz processor, 3.7-inch ClearBlack WVGA display, 8GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, and a five megapixel shooter with auto focus and a LED flash. Other features include WLAN 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, 1300mAh battery, and A-GPS.
The device is available from a number of the country’s carriers that include Orange, O2, T-Mobile, and Vodafone. The device is available for free on a number of different call plans with a two year contract beginning at £15.50 per month via Phones 4U and Orange. For this you get 100 minutes of talk time and 3,000 SMS messages along with 0.10GB of data.
Rival carrier O2 will also give you the handset free of charge for a £21.50 per month fee, and for this you get 200 minutes of talk time, unlimited SMS messages, and 0.50GB of data. Another deal via Phones 4U with Vodafone gets you the Lumia 710 for free with 300 minutes, 3,000 SMS messages, and 0.25GB of data for £20.50 per calendar month.
If you want the handset SIM free online retailer Amazon has the device listed at £299.99 with a ship date of February 10th, while rival retailer Clove has it listed at a penny more at £300. It also lists expected stock for tomorrow. Play.com currently has no price or shipping date listed for the device.
