Nokia has debuted its first budget Window Phone-based smartphone, the Nokia 710, at its annual Nokia World 2011 event in London today (26 October).
The Lumia 710 boasts the same 1.4GHz processor, hardware acceleration and graphics processor as the Nokia Lumia 800, also launched today.
It is available in black and a white variant with black, white, cyan, fuchsia and yellow back covers. The smartphone can also be personalised with exchangeable back covers and thousands of apps.
Nokia says that the smartphone is designed for instant social messaging and image sharing, and offers the best browsing experience on an affordable handset, making it accessible to more consumers.
The Nokia Lumia 710 will be released in the UK in early 2012.
Meanwhile, Nokia also announced the launch of a range of Symbian Series 40 handsets, the Nokia Asha 300, 303, 200 and 201.
Nokia claims that the handsets ‘blur the line between smartphones and feature phones’. The handsets offer combined QWERTY and touch-screen designs. They also boast fast and easy access to the internet, integrated social networking as well as full access to the Nokia App Store.
