Nokia has opened pre-orders for its highly-awaited Windows Phone devices – the Nokia Lumia 800 and 710. Interested readers can visit any Nokia Priority Store to pre-order the device, and pay a booking amount of Rs. 1,000.
The Nokia Lumia 800 and 710 were first announced for India back on November 14th, however, no precise pricing details were revealed then, apart from a repetition of the global suggested pricing of $580 for the Lumia 800, and $380 for the Lumia 710.
We expect India pricing to be roughly similar, between Rs. 28,000 to Rs. 30,000 for the Lumia 800, and between Rs. 19,000 and Rs. 22,000 for the Lumia 710. We can expect retail availability to be by mid-December, or in other words, the device should be on shelves sometime within the next couple of weeks.
The two 3.7-inch Nokia Windows Phones have rather similar specifications, making the large price difference seem fairly bizarre. Common ones include a 1.4GHz processor with a 3D Graphics HW Accelerator, 512MB of RAM, 25GB of free Microsoft cloud storage, no expandable storage, stereo FM with RDS, and 720p HD video recording.
While the two phones have the same screen size and resolution (800x480 pixels), the Lumia 800 bears a Clear Black AMOLED display, while the 710 has a conventional TFT offering. Other differences include larger storage, a better camera, and a larger battery.
