Nokia Introduces The Television World To The Lumia 710, Only On T-Mobile

Nokia’s first Windows Phone entry in the US market is already on T-Mobile store shelves nationwide and thus begins the marketing campaign. Nokia has a thirty-second television commercial primed and ready to showcase just a tiny amount of what the Lumia 710 can do. Nokia wants to connect you to “The Amazing Everyday” by highlighting the people hub, Nokia Drive and of course the “only on T-Mobile” message at the end.

    This is a nice phone though, seriously.

    • http://benpike.net Ben Pike

      Agreed – I’m loving mine.

    • http://twitter.com/RudyFlyer4 CJ

      It looks like a nice phone but, I wish it had a 4 inch screen and more Memory ie 16gb then i would buy it :( I was hoping they would mess up in shipping and stock the 800 HAHA just a joke but I am glad Nokia is on the upswing with Phones now.

      • Kristin

        Well you do get 25gb online Storage via windows skydive which is free

        • http://twitter.com/RudyFlyer4 CJ

          Can you place apps on skydrive? Can PDF files, PPT and excel files be read from sky drive? Thanks

        • teabaghater

          cause the phone doesnt take cards just like an i phone

      • Plan_C

        You young bucks must all have huge pockets and big hands.  There’s a whole lotta people that are happy trading off a little screen real estate for being able to:  a) hold and operate the phone with one hand/thumb, and b) fit the thing in any number of pockets w/o it feeling like a brick or TI-30 (whoops, I date myself).

      I’ve had a chance to play with one today and it is quite nice. Unfortunately Nokia yanked the Internet Sharing wifi hotspot feature for some forsaken reason.

      Why did they have to go and do that? :(

      • http://tmonews.com David

        I noticed that too, drove me crazy!

      • Anonymous

        They didnt yank it. The way the wifi hotspot works for windows phone it will only work on the higher end model phones with better processors. While the lumia 710 is nice it is being advertised as this awesome machine when it isn’t a awesome machine. I think they completely effed this one up. It is the lowest quality windows phone and I believed really should have been used to highlight t-mobile unlimited 4g pre-paid plan. However even then without the 2-year contract the phone isn’t very competitively priced. Anyone could have went and bought the radar 4g for $349 the same magical price as the lumia 710 with way more under the hood. The phone should be priced under 300 and I think that will slip and make the sales less than desirable for the 710. However people who buy it will inevitably love windows phones and upgrade to whatever new product windows comes out with in the future.

        • http://twitter.com/LarsKelley Lars Kelley

          None of Nokia’s WP7 have Internet Sharing yet and it has nothing to do with low end or high end since the 710, 800, and 900 all have the same 1.4 Ghz Snapdragon S2 Processor.

          They just have enabled it yet, though they seemed to promise it in a future software update.

          And the retail for the Radar 4G is $399, sure its dropped on various sites since launch, so will the Lumia 710 over time.

          The Lumia 710 has a better processor, has a compass, has a better camera with more settings (ISO etc…)  The only thing the Radar 4G has going for it is internet sharring and front facing camera.

        • Foxeh

          Exactly. Keith’s source of information has clearly led him astray to believe that the Radar’s 1Ghz S2 Snapdragon is higher end than the 710′s 1.4GHz S2 Snapdragon, allowing only the former to get Internet Sharing.

          The thing is I know better than to buy a device based on the “promise” of what an update may or may not bring. I’ve seen far too many people make that mistake already.

    Nice cameo for Molly Moon’s!!!  I love their ice cream.

    • Commander_Fury

      Be honest . Have you ever once had bad ice cream ? It doesn’t even spoil . It just simply melts.

  • Tmoguy

    dont know if i’d want this phone but its nice to see a decent tmobile commercial for a change.

  • Anonymous

    For the average consumer, this commercial only shows that this phone is not an Android phone or iPhone.

    This is the up hill battle Windows Phone has to deal with now.

  • Junieruiz

    We got the leftover att got the 900 and we got the 710 that’s way off if it wasn’t because of my white galaxy s2 I wouldn’t bitch t mobile long time ago every other carrier steppin up there game and like always we are left behind in the dust CES was a failure no galaxy nexus or anything new nothin runnin on ice cream sandwich not a single tablet all they have to offer is another galaxy s2 no phone just a picture you have to be kidding me and now they’re trying to promote the nokia 710 what a bunch of garbage

    • Commander_Fury

      Man ya gotta realize the merger was just scotched last month . 

      • Junieruiz

        T mobile have nothing to show for there aint no excuses point blank

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Oh yeah suuurrreeee, Nokia give Tmobile (Exclusively) this second rate phone instead of the Frickin’ MeeGo powered N9 that I wanted (ANYBODY that has been following this site for a few years knows how upset I am about this Debauchery). 

    I mean heck, they could’ve even gave T-Mobile the Lumia 800 and that would’ve been a better thing to promote but sheesh the 710?  I know it’ll be Snowing in the Sahara before Tmobile even thinks of getting the Nokia Lumia 900 (That I personally don’t even want but it’s better than the freaking 710).

    Nokia gave Tmobile thsi so they could promote it and when Tmo thinks they have a leg up (For some unknown reason) Another Carrier will get the Lumia 900 and piss off alot of Tmo WP7 fans.

    Nokia is no more to me in the mobile phone department.  They still make great accessories though but as far as a cell phone company, I am no longer a fan of theirs.

    Side Note: Did I mention that Tmobile DIDN’T tell me that my grandfathered Unlimited everything plan was changed without my knowledge and now I’m on a 5GB plan and if I want 10gb plan, it’d cost me $125 a month?

    • Commander_Fury

      Whats weirder is no one has picked up the Lumia 800 . I wanted that . Why couldn’t TMO get a batch of those . T-Mobile is going to have to show me something . Verizon and there free 2g’s of data sale is enticing .

      • Wilma Flintstone

        True.  I don’t understand Nokia’s marketing sometimes.  You’d think they’d made a deal with someone to pick up the 800 as well if they really want their WP devices to pick up.  I don’t even want the 800 but I do know that there are people that do so why not give access to more markets?

        Side Note: I have a friend on Verizon that has Unlimited Everything and it costs them $120.  I thought Tmo was the cheapest out of the big four?  Can someone explain the plans in more detail because that sounds like Verizon is cheaper for everything than Tmo.

        • Tmorep

          $120 is cheap?! lol no…

          tmo will give you unl min+msg+web for $80/mo TOTAL on the value plan including the Galaxy S2. $60/mo for the plan and $20/mo for 20 months for the phone. not including insurance or taxes of course

        No Manufacture wants a cell phone provider that has lack of coverage and inconsistent coverage. That is why Apple and Nokia don’t put their high end devices (or Nokia’a) higher end devices on T Mobile __because they don’t want their high end products to be represented by a halfway not so decent network, T Mobile. That is the only reason, and consumers should take note. If T Mobile is so bad that Apple wont’ let em sell one of their older version of iPhones, than maybe we shouldn’t give T Mobile our service.
        And how often does your T Mobile phone work indoors, sure.. there are locations where it will, but on average when going out travelling..that 4g dissappers quite often  going to Edge
        or 2g..and than to no bars… and than to 4g and than to no bars..
        No Network. …
        T Mobile has bad engineering and very ungenerous cell phone tower deployment.

        • Commander_Fury

          Good grief Andy .Even US Cellular was offered the iPhone . It requires a multi year deal that TMO couldn’t commit to with the merger in progress . Believe me Andy Nokia will sell to anyone : ) Their broke Beavis . 

          For most people TMO is fine . They just need better handsets ,

        • teabaghater

          What are you talking about t mobile 4g is faster they have good coverage ???????????????

        • Tmorep

          “than” and “then” have two different meanings. ungenerous is not a word. try meager.

          now that thats out of the way… the reason why tmobile is not getting the higher end nokia is because nokia has been going downhill for the past few years. no carrier wants to risk a large sum of money on a phone or platform that doesnt currently sell well. thats why theyre slowly introducing phones on wp7. test the waters first.

          as for att, they can afford to purchase the 900 or whatever it is because theyre a huge company with a large customer base. they dont care as much if the phone doesnt sell because they have their braindead apple followers throwing money at them any which way they can. besides, im more than positive they received a generous discount on that large order…

      • http://twitter.com/bluechrism Chris Martin

        See comment above, but it has been picked up by Telus in Canada (where Rogers is getting 710). In the USA you can at least, pick it up unlocked from around Valentines day.  I’m OK with no-one offering it if it means there will be an unlocked version available (not possible with Lumia 900 and probably 710 due to exclusivity agreements).

        • Commander_Fury

          I hope your right about the 800 being pentaband . I heard it wasn’t pentaband and would only work on edge speeds .

        • http://twitter.com/bluechrism Chris Martin

          European version won’t work here, there is a US version coming in Feb.  I am now getting conflicting info on the pentaband bit though – i’m trying to confirm at the moment, but it does seem that there is a US version with different radio’s for the US market….

          Gutted – Not pentaband, and no T-Mo support. Sorry for the false alarm. At CES they had an information screen showing it was, and everyone seemed to confirm it.  Now i’m hearing it’s not – 850/1900/2100 only.

        • Commander_Fury

          No worries . Thanks for the info Chris .

    • http://twitter.com/bluechrism Chris Martin

      I expect Nokia may ahve been happy to have t-mo sell it, if they wanted to, but yes the focus is WP7.
      Still, buy one unlocked, prices getting reasonable now on ebay, and i hear of goodies on thye way in the next update.  I love mine (though i wish it wasn’t partitioned, and that it’s camera was better – too used to N8), though i’m not sure if i had that and Lumia 800 which would be use more often – both are great. I want Nokia and MS to marry the OS’s and come with some awesome convergence featuring swipe UI and certainly the N9 mutitasking screed, the people hub, live tiles and integrated skype and other services like youtube, flickr and picasa.

      As for the 800 – good news is that it’s coming unlocked to Microsoft stores before Valentines, comelete with Pentaband radio up to 14Mbits/s (i think same as Lumia 710), fit for use on T-Mobile or AT&T.

          No really? That’s kinda the problem.  I for one, and I know many others, would like a high end Windows Phone.

  • http://www.unscripted360.com Deacon

    the intent of Microsoft to keep Windows Phone simple is both its downfall and best trait.  it’s simple .. it’s always the same .. across all devices whether that be a Lumina 710 or Titan .. and that’s also why it’s just not as “sexy” as Android or iPhone right now .

    people want to make a phone their own and you can only do but so much with Windows Phone to make it your own .. the customization of its tiles and such is just too limited and plain. which is what MS aimed for but then it is what holds them back i believe. every WP looks the same, runs the same.

    • ComeOnMSListenThisTime

      Well, I just got a Windows Phone and while I am totally amazed that a company in the business for so long can LEAVE OUT things/features/nuances that they learned and applied in other venues EONS AGO…. it is without doubt that this platform is going to do right for a BIG slice of the market IF that slice gives it a shot.

      I VERY much appreciate the look and the flow of this OS. I FULLY expect they will LISTEN to all the complaints now mounting in their online feedback forum….quite frankly, because many of the outstanding issues are not “over and above” requests…they are “bread and butter” operations which MS should not have left out…but I am sure in the rush to get the product out there some of this stuff just was left off/out.

      I’m sold. I already like how a whole lotta things function vs the competitive phones. I think NOKIA had A LOT of things right in their most recent OS renditions. I trust MS will listen to their input.

      The age 10-30 group can have their Androids…. I’m betting the 40+ and business will be very happy going with Windows Phone. That’s allotta people, remember?  Baby Boomers.

  • Andrew

    why not dual core? why only 5 megapixel? why not HD 1080?
    Don’t settle for this phone, it is only mediocre. Not worth it. The price might fit your budget and appeal because of the price and 4g, but it really is worth the extra money to invest into the HTC Amaze or Galaxy II. Trust me, the Nokia Lumia is last years technology (besides having mango). (That is like when the MyTouch 4g got android 2.3. big woop.) you have a choice, you don’t have to settle for last years technology. get a dual core HTC or Samsung phone. best way to go

    • Foxeh

      It’s dual-core and and the wi-fies.

    • Anonymous

      To be honest, I would get a wp7 phone for anyone in my family but myself because of it’s usability and microsofts approach. This thing will always be updated because they all use the same internals. Awesome software integration and optimization is just as good as androids growing specs. 
      Mediocre? I have to tweak my phone like mad, throwing rom after rom, and app after app. This just works… and sometimes stock android simply refuses to function right(I know too many people who tell me this who don’t have the time/necessity to fix it.) 
      Just think of a Porsche, relatively mid range hp, but the got the formula right to be competitive with the big leagues.

    Just got a 710 a few days ago. Still getting used to it, but so far, so good. I used to use an G2x and, before that, a Nexus S 4G on Sprint. Both were buggy, slow, and just a pain-in-the-ass to use on a day-to-day basis. I got tired of rooting, ROM’ing, restarting, and tweaking all the time, just to get certain things to work right…or better.

    So far, while this phone is certainly “mid-range,” it works well, and does everything I want and need it to…fast. Zero lag doing anything, and I’m quickly becoming really accustomed to Windows Phone’s simplicity. I also like how fast the camera is and that I can even wake my phone and access its camera with the press and hold of a dedicated button. I so wish the hardware was a little higher end, but other than that, it’s been nothing but smooth sailing…

  • Just Root It

    I bought a Lumia 710 and I can see why they are becoming popular. Coming from a Galaxy S2, the phone feels a little cheap, but the OS is smooth and fluid. For the average user these are great devices. Unfortunately they lack many features i am used to (coming from BB 990 and then SGS2).
    I like mass storage and expandible memeory.
    I like being able to make playlist on the go (especially on road trips).
    I like a lot more email settings than what are availible in WP7.5.
    But i need a business phone and I enjoy apps, especially games (XBox Live games are great but too few).

    So great simple, easy to use OS on the Lumia, but for advanced users who want full control over the phone, probably stick with android.

    For me it was just a little too simple.
