The Nokia Lumia 710 is now slowly rolling out around the world. On the inside, its similar to the Lumia 800 it packs a 1.4 Ghz Qualcomm MSM8255 (WCDMA) processor with 512 MB of RAM. It’s also got a 5 Megapixel Camera with a LED flash, a 3.7″ CBD LCD display, and weighs in at 126 grams.
The Lumia 710 is the entry level, value priced Windows Phone and has a very important task, namely to allow a greater penetration of the Windows Phone platform in the middle segment of the market. At the same time, thanks in part to the hardware shared with the Nokia Lumia 800, can be considered a second generation of Windows Phone from the best value for money.
There’s no doubt about it, the Lumia 710 is light in the hand. The plastics used in its construction manage to shave off the extra heft we’ve come to associate with more premium handsets and at no detriment to the quality of build. Another interesting thing about the Lumia 710 is that swappable back covers make a comeback to Nokia devices. So you can have a black or white Lumia 710 with backs ranging from blue, yellow, pink and a few other colours.
