T-Mobile USA has started offering the Nokia Lumia 710 Windows Phone based device in the United States for $49.99.
According to an article on SlashGear, the device is based on Windows Phone 7 Mango and runs on a 1.4GHz single-core processor.
Available in black and white, the smartphone has a 3.7 inch WVGA display and a 5MP rear camera capable of high definition video recording. However, the device does not come with a front facing camera.
The phone supports HSPA+, but does not support LTE.
The Nokia Lumia 710, available on a two year contract, comes pre-loaded with the Nokia Drive app for navigation and the ESPN app. Nokia also plans to provide some exclusive apps for Lumia soon. The device also features the Nokia Music app for music streaming.
T-Mobile has also included its T-Mobile TV for video streaming as well. However, as Slashgear notes, T-Mobile is not doing enough to promote the device. There is no sign of the device on the main pages of the T-Mobile website - users have to click on the smartphone section to learn more about the new phone. With many other phones to choose from, more advertising may be necessary to consumers' attention.
