Nokia launched its first ever Windows Phone 7 based phone in London last month. Finally leaving Symbian at its place, Nokia stepped into something better and looks like this is the comeback. It was promised by Nokia that this Lumia series of phone will be launched in India before the end of this year and to the surprise as early as on 14th November the phone will be available in India.
India has tons of Nokia fan’s who will always prefer Nokia over any other good phone in the market. Looks like this is the reason why Nokia is unveiling the phone so soon in Indian market. Among the two phones launched last month, Nokia Lumia 710 will be launched on 14th November while Nokia Lumia 800 may appear next month here in India.
Nokia Lumia 710 Tech Specs
Nokia Lumia sports Windows Phone 7 (7.5) for which it is known for. It is powered by 1.4GHz CPU alongside with 512MB RAM. It has 3.7inch TFT display having stock resolution of 480×800 pixels. The display screen is made out of Gorilla Glass and so no worries scratches surfacing over it. This phone only comes in 8GB variant with no expandable memory support as none of the Windows Phone 7 based devices (except. Samsung Focus) supports.

Nokia Lumia 710 Price in India
Pricing of Lumia 710 is not yet announced by Nokia, it will be announced with the announcement of the phone. But I think looking at the phone’s specifications, build and price in US dollars, Nokia Lumia 710 will be available in India will be somewhere between Rs. 18,000 to Rs. 22,000 INR. If the price exceeds Rs. 22,000/- INR it will not be a wise decision to go with this phone.
Nokia’s phone are always less demanded due to its price factor. Nokia has already learnt a lesson from its N8’s sales record, hope they don’t repeat the mistake again.
