Already stated in our Nokia Lumia 800 Preview today, the Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 710 have been announced and are being showcased right now over at Nokia World in London. Let’s see what’s different on the Nokia Lumia 710 and what people’s initial thoughts are.
Nokia Lumia 710
Hardware & Features
Like the Nokia Lumia 800, the Nokia Lumia 710 features a 3.7″ curved glass touchscreen display, but instead of the one piece body like the 800 you get a changeable back cover. This lets you personalise the look of your mobile, and since it comes in 10 different colour schemes you get quite a few options to mix and match. Its edges are round giving a distinctly different style to its brother. For imaging you get a 5megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, face detection and x4 digital zoom. Under the hood we have the same 1.4GHz processor supported by 512MB of RAM and 8GB of mass memory.

Along with being able to change your back covers, you can personalise the colour of the tiles in the OS too. This will really appeal to those of us who wear their hearts on their sleeve and wish to keep their mobile up to date with their mood. Sunny day, feeling inspired? Then why not try a nice yellow set of tiles?
Of course the Nokia Lumia 710 runs Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. If you haven’t seen how the OS has been implemented on Nokia before, there are a number of videos from Nokia explaining what you can expect. Here are a couple of examples for you to consider:
People & Messaging via Nokia
Office and Mail via Nokia
Pradeep from WMPowerUser handily shared all of the demo videos. So jump over and take a look at them for a bigger picture. Also over on Engadget you can find some hands-on videos from on the ground at Nokia World.
What is your take on the Nokia Lumia 710 so far? Here’s some feedback we grabbed from Twitter earlier:
@Ant: Really digging the white Lumia 710 with the blue back cover and blue theme
@_renzified: I like the Nokia Lumia 710! HAHAH
@rschu: That’s the game changer! “Retail price for the Nokia Lumia 710 is a very reasonable 270 Euros”
Do you agree with what is being said? We’d love to know @Nokia Connects!
