Nokia Lumia 710: start your pre-order engines at Clove

Nokia Lumia 710: start your pre-order engines at CloveWith all the attention that's been focused on the Nokia Lumia 800 it's easy to forget that it wasn't the only Windows Phone Mango handset our Finnish friends announced at Nokia World a couple of months ago.

There was also the Lumia 710, a more entry-level affair that will prove a real test of the Microsoft's OS entry-level appeal. We'll still have to wait until it goes on sale next month to find out, but head over to Clove and you'll be able to signal your intentions by laying down £318 in pre-order cash.

That sort of price tag means the Lumia 710 can't quite be termed “entry-level”, but it's an important moment all the same for a Windows Phone platform that thus far has been limited to a fairly narrow mid-range stomping ground.

Fortunately, the spec isn't entry level either, given the likes of the 1.4GHz processor, 480 x 800 ClearBlack display, and 8GB of on-board storage.

And despite the Lumia 800 having hogged the limelight thus far thanks to Nokia's huge marketing drive to punt its debut Windows Phone in the run-up to Christmas, handsets such as the Lumia 710 may prove a more accurate barometer of whether the company really can turn things around and reclaim a decent spot at the smartphone table.
