Nokia Lumia 710 going for under £100

Nokia Lumia 710 going for under £100We’ve already posted a couple of Nokia Lumia 710 deals this week, but time for a news-o-version of the sexy price cut.

The Nokia Lumia 710, hailed as the one of “first real Windows Phones” alongside the Lumia 800 at launch last October, is now available for less than a hundred quid.

You can grab the Nokia Lumia 710 from mobiles.co.uk for £99.90, or Carphone Warehouse for £99.95. In either case, an initial top-up of £10 is required, and you’ve a choice of T-Mobile, Vodafone or Orange PAYG.

At Carphone Warehouse, the Nokia Lumia 710 was £279.95 between February 8 and April 5 this year, then £129.95 until June 1. That’s quite the price drop in just a few months.

Of course, the Nokia Lumia 610 should – in theory - be even cheaper. It’ll drop soon with Windows Phone Tango, which lowers the rigid minimum spec requirements, paving the way for 256MB of RAM. Confusingly, however, initial estimates make the Nokia Lumia 610 more expensive than the Lumia 710. What the...?

Nokia has boldly backed Windows Phone 7 as its “primary smartphone platform”, however recent estimates put Microsoft’s mobile market share at around 2%. Oh dear.

At that price they are lightly to be selling at/below cost price. But they need volume at any cost at the moment or they are dead. Nokia is getting eaten by Samsung and Apple at the top end and Samsung+Others at the bottom.

Elop claims 2/3's of top apps run on WP7, strange as on TV I have not seem ANY advert that ended with "this app is available on WP". Without serious volume that wont change. Without apps and the perception that there are apps, there will be no serious volume.

At this stage the Symbian Nokia phones should not still be having to hold up Nokias average selling price!!!!

N8, E7 etc still haven't gone down that much in price. Also HTC's HD2.
