The UK carrier Three has just revealed that the Nokia Lumia 710 is now available from their website, we’ve just had a glance at the prices and we have to say we think that this smartphone could attract quite a lot of attention and introduce people to Windows Phone 7 (7.5 to be exact) for the first time.
The Lumia 710 isn’t as aesthetically pleasing as the Lumia 800, but it still boasts some pretty desirable specifications, to start with there’s a 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor, a 3.7″ touchscreen display which outputs at 800 x 480 and utilizes ClearBlack technology and Gorilla Glass protection, a 5 megapixel camera, 8GB of internal storage (no memory card slot), WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR.
You can buy the Lumia 710 outright for £199, alternatively there are plenty of 24 month deals available all of which will give you the handset for free as part of the agreement. The cheapest option is the Text 500 plan, this costs you £22 and gives you 500 minutes, 5,000 texts and 1,000MB of data usage. Alternatively you can pay £25 per month for the Text 500 All-you-can-eat-data plan, this gives you the same minutes and texts as the last, however you get unlimited data usage (All-you-can-eat).
The most expensive price plan is great for those of you who like to chat, text and browse a lot, ‘The One Plan’ costs you £29 per month and gets you 2000 talk time minutes, 5,000 texts and all-you-can-eat data usage.
You can buy the Nokia Lumia 710 from Three here, it is very similarly priced to the HTC Desire S and Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S – which of these ‘three’ would you buy?
