Shortly after the launch of Globe’s Nokia Lumia 800, Smart followed with its own exclusive Nokia Windows Phone device. The Lumia 710, a mid-range model for the Finnish-company’s current line of Windows Phones is now exclusive to the carrier and is now available through their postpaid subscriptions. Chief of which is the Special Edition Plan 1000, which comes with 500 texts to all networks, 500 minutes of calls to Smart / Talk ‘N Text, and 1GB of mobile data. With this, the “Lumia Fever” is finally in full swing and will hopefully usher in a new era of Windows Phone users here in the Philippines.
The Nokia Lumia 710 is the other half of the first batch of Windows Phones from the Finnish mobile phone maker. It is one of the more affordable offerings from this mentioned first batch, but its features aren’t really all that bad compared to its Lumia 800 brother. It still packs the same 1.4Ghz processor; 3.7” 800×480 screen albeit in LCD form; a 5MP camera with LED Flash, 720p video recording, and 8GB of onboard storage. Its main difference from the Lumia 800 is that it packs the aforementioned LCD screen and 8GBs of storage. One advantage that we think the 710 has is that the SIM slot is still the standard one and not the newer Micro SIM – which means that old users of SIM cards don’t have to cut their cards just yet. With the 1.4Ghz processor, its just as fast as the top end of the line and should promise an unparalleled Windows Phone performance in a mid-range, affordable body.
The Nokia Lumia 710 is available now through Smart’s Special Edition Plan 1000 and of course should be available through other plans as well. You can grab one now or check them out at Smart Stores nationwide, or online through Smart’s website at Smart.Com.PH.
