£150 Nokia Lumia 710 Is Now Cheapest Windows Phone In UK

Vodafone has slashed the price of the Nokia Lumia 710, an entry level Windows Phone handset launched last year, to a mere £150 with free delivery.

The handset also comes with six months free Zune music pass (the offer ends 31st March 2012) as well as a free satellite navigation app from Nokia called Nokia Drive.

Like the more expensive Nokia Lumia 800, the Lumia 710 packs a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 single core system on chip with 512MB RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a 3.65-inch 800 by 480 pixels capacitive display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, a five megapixel camera with 720p HD, a microUSB port plus it runs on Windows Phone 7.5.

At £150, it is cheaper than the JIL Sander, a slightly improved version of the LG E906, which cost £170, but is also locked and has half the onboard memory.

Surprisingly, the same phone costs £290, nearly twice the price of the Vodafone model, at Play.com and we wonder how much the Lumia 610 - which was announced at Mobile World Congress - will cost when it goes on sale.
