Nokia Lumia 710 now available in the UK and Canada, free with contract in the US
The Nokia Lumia 710 is in the news again. Nokia’s midrange Windows Phone device saw its price cut by a cool 20% at T-Mobile yesterday, but today you can get it for free (provided that you have nothing against signing a new two-year contract with the magenta carrier of course).
The free Lumia 710 can be had at physical Microsoft stores, the Microsoft online store, or Wirefly. In all three cases you’ll be paying the best possible price for what is a very decent handset that comes with the latest version of Windows Phone, Microsoft’s newest mobile operating system.
The Nokia Lumia 710 has officially gone on sale today in the UK, at least according to Nokia’s UK arm which tweeted as much. We can’t find it listed as being in stock at any retailers at the moment, but it surely is in stock somewhere. So if you’re in the UK and want to grab a Lumia 710 check with your friendly local phone retailer, or your preferred online avenue for buying gadgets – perhaps you’ll be luckier than we were. The Nokia Lumia 710 will surely be available in every store in the UK in a few days, when everyone gets their first stocks, so don’t panic if you don’t find it today.
The Lumia 710 is also out in Canada today, and apparently it should already be in Rogers stores (although it isn’t listed online by the carrier just yet). This is the first Windows Phone to go on sale in Canada in more than a year, and it’s exclusive to Rogers.
You can pick up a Nokia Lumia 710 from Rogers for $49.99 with a three-year contract, $99.99 with a two-year contract, $149.99 with a one-year contract, and $254.99 without a contract being involved.
