Finnish company Nokia it seems have been busy little bees, with an announcement of some new mobile phone handsets on the way. Officially unveiled at the Nokia World conference in London just a short time ago, the new range of phones will arrive with the new Mango OS as well as specs to appeal to just about everybody.

We’ve already brought you news about the new Nokia Lumia 800 so it’s the turn of its affordable brother, the new Lumia 710. Being slightly smaller than its counterpart, the Lumia 710 will include a 3.7-inch WVGA TFT capacitive touch ClearBlack display, as Pocketlint reported 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, 1.4GHz single processor, 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash, with an average battery life of 6.9 hours with standby up to 400 hours.

Included in the price of £235 or equivalent €270 SIM-free will be that of the company’s WH-208 headphones, as well as consumers being able to use the handset with the new Nokia Purity Stereo headset by Monster.

There will be a choice of colors being that of black or white, but what makes the Lumia 710 different from the Lumia 800, is that of its changeable back covers, being available in bright colors such as cyan, fuchsia and yellow. Unlike the Lumia 800, the 710 will be available from next year.

Over at, they have managed to take a closer hands-on look with the Lumia 710 with their findings noted, some of which include a decent processor, nice-looking interface with Windows Phone colourful tiles, the new Mango OS allowing multitasking, although downsides include its low 5 megapixel camera, physical buttons at the bottom as oppose to touch and so on.
