Nokia’s low end Lumia 610 has been the subject of some controversy recently, as it was revealed that its lowly processor couldn’t run a bunch of top flight apps. Still, that needn’t be an issue that concerns many would-be Windows Phone owners: its bigger brother, the Nokia Lumia 710 has just had its price ripped down into bargain territory.
The Nokia Lumia 710 runs on Windows Phone 7.5 and benefits from a meatier processor with 512MB of RAM to the 610’s 256. It’s got a 3.7-inch display, a 5-Meg camera and 8GB of internal storage, and it’s all available for a frankly silly £99.95.
That’s as part of a limited deal at Carphone Warehouse, where the Lumia 710 is ducking under that magic £100 mark for the next week. It’s available on pay as you go deals with Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone between now and the 7th of June.
We’ve mentioned this in the past, but Windows Phone’s simplicity really lends itself to life on the budget end of the smartphone market – a space that Android is suddenly struggling to fill with handsets sporting the newest OS.
Anyone tempted, then? A smartphone with these specs for under £100 is a bit of a steal, even if it is only for a limited run. Is Windows Phone about to clean up in the budget market?
