(update : Nokia has now corrected the page and it clearly says that the Lumia 710 comes with no microSD slot).
Nokia announced a second Windows Phone handset at today’s Nokia World conference, the Lumia 710 which is a curvier, hipper version of the Lumia 800.
Like the latter, the 710 has a single core Qualcomm S2 SoC (the MSM8255) clocked at 1.4GHz, 512MB RAM, a 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen with a WVGA resolution (and the ClearBlack sticker slapped on it), microSIM and Windows Phone Mango of course.
The rest though sounds a lot like a first generation Windows Phone handset. 8GB onboard storage, a five megapixel rear camera, FM Radio, HD video recording, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microUSB and a 1300mAh battery that can power the phone for up to 7.6 hours talk time.
It’s worth noting that according to the specs of the phone, the Lumia 710 comes with a microSD card slot which allows users to expand the onboard storage up to 24GB. It’s a shame though that it supports only 16GB models, whilst the whole Asha range supports 32GB microSD cards.
Software-wise, it comes with Bing Maps, Nokia Drive, Nokia Music, Nokia Store, Office but no Xbox Live apparently. The phone – which will be available in black and white – will be out soon and will cost 270 Euros.Leave a comment on this article
