The Nokia Lumia 710 could hit UK shelves on January 6, according to online retailer Digital Phone, as shown in the above screenshot. Nokia Australia confirmed the phone would arrive on Australian shores next year but declined to provide a launch date.
“Each country operates differently and as such we are taking a phased approach to the role out of our first Nokia with Windows Phone range - Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 710. In Australia and New Zealand, we have been working closely with our partners to bring these exciting new products to customers in this region.”
The Nokia Lumia 800's 1.4GHz little brother will come with Windows Phone Mango OS and the same 512MB RAM and 3.7in 800x480 screen, but will be sporting a lower powered 5MP snapper. If the price drop is significant, though, it could well be worth sacrificing a few megapixels.
With apps like Shazam showing off the power of live tiles, Windows Phone Mango’s potential is being realised. An affordable handset like the Lumia 710 could be just what Microsoft needs to present a serious threat to iOS and Android.
