Lumia 710 gets a price cut due to slow sales in India

Just in a month after its launch, Nokia’sWindows Phone 7-powered Lumia 710 has received a price cut of roughly 20 per cent, making it the cheapest Windows Phone 7.5 handset currently available.

Though, Nokia has not officially confirmed the price drop, but several online retailers are selling the phone at a considerable reduced pricing.

The company in December last year had launched the much-delayed Windows Phone 7.5 powered handsets, Lumia 800 and Lumia 710, with much fanfare. However, shortly after the launch, Nokia admitted that some units of its flagship model — Lumia 800 — suffers from a software bug which is preventing the battery of Lumia 800 from charging to full capacity.

According to several reports on the web, Lumia 710 is currently priced around Rs 15,490 on websites like Flipkart and Letsbuy. Online retailer Saholic is selling the smartphone at a further low of Rs 14,899.

Nokia had launched Lumia 710 at Rs 18,999, while Lumia 810 launch price was Rs 29,999 approximately.

Sporting a 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution, Lumia 710 comes with 5 megapixel AF camera with LED flash and 720p video recording.

Other key features include 3G, EDGE/GPRS, Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth with A2DP + EDR, USB 2.0 and FM radio.
