At the ongoing Mobile World Congress 2012 at Barcelona, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop took center stage elucidated on the recent success the Finnish smartphone manufacturer has had with the company managing to release four Windows Phone devices within just a year of its partnership with Microsoft. In addition to that, Elop also expounded on the success of the Nokia Lumia 710 4G from T-Mobile, the handset considered by many as the return-device of Nokia to US shores.
In addition to that, the Nokia CEO also claimed that sales of the Nokia Lumia 710 4G are exceeding expectations and they are very pleased with the handset’s current performance in the smartphone market which has been dominated by Android devices and the iPhone for as far back as we can remember. Though Elop did not quote hard figures, it appears that Nokia managed to get a hit with the release of the Nokia Lumia 710 4G in US shores via T-Mobile with the handset getting increased visibility through time.

The website of T-Mobile in fact supports this claim from the Nokia CEO as the page containing information about the Nokia Lumia 710 4G places the handset as the carrier’s third best-selling smartphone. And to top it all off, this level hasn’t been reached by any Windows Phone device in US shores for the longest time. In the same vein, the handset is also on the third spot for user satisfaction garnering 4.7 stars out of 5 in 168 user review. At this point, let us quickly go over the specs sheet of the Nokia Lumia 710 4G from T-Mobile to get an idea as to why this handset became such a big hit at the wireless provider.
The Nokia Lumia 710 4G from T-Mobile reached official status when it was announced last December and has since then been available in the shelves of the wireless provider. The handset boasts of the solid build quality we have come to associate with Nokia handsets and it has a frame that has dimensions of 119 x 62.4 x 12.5 mm and it weighs in at 125.5 grams.
Under the hood, the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system of the Nokia Lumia 710 4G is powered by a QualComm MSM8255 SnapDragon chipset while a single-core Scorpion processor clocked at 1.4 GHz is complemented by 512 MB of RAM in delivering computing muscle to the handset. A dedicated Adreno 205 GPU on the other hand handles graphical concerns while the storage space of the handset is pegged at 8GB. The display of the Nokia Lumia 710 4G has a diagonal of 3.7 inches and is of the TFT capacitive multitouch variant. It is powered by Nokia’s ClearBlack technology and has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Sad to say, the Nokia Lumia 710 4G only has one shooter to bring to the table in the form of its rear-facing 5-megapixel autofocus camera capable of 720p video capture at 30 frames per second.
Clearly, the Nokia Lumia 710 4G is one impressive device with the requisite components and capabilities to bring to the tablet. Get your hands on the Nokia Lumia 710 4G for only $99.99 at select T-Mobile authorized retailers with a new two-year contract with T-Mobile.
