Nokia launches Lumia 800 and 710 in India; due on shelves mid-December


Nokia India today launched the “first true Windows Phone 7 devices”, the Nokia Lumia 800 and 710, which will be stocked on shelves by mid-December. Pricing will also become available then, but for now, the global suggested pricing figures are rough benchmarks – $580 for the Lumia 800 and $380 for the Lumia 710.
For more details about the two Nokia Windows Phones’ specifications, refer to our previous coverage of the Nokia World global launch event. Both devices will run on Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, and you can check out more details about the platform here and here.
Today’s launch in New Delhi, which also had Microsoft India’s WP7 team out of Bangalore and Chairman Bhaskar Pramanik in attendance, did hold some interesting news however, especially about what makes a Nokia Windows Phone different from other Windows Phone devices in the market. We’re talking of strengths apart from ‘Nokia’s reliable hardware, and Microsoft’s cutting-edge software,’ which was the tagline from the partnership.
The Nokia Windows Phones, Lumia 800 and 710, will come with few unique features onboard utilizing many of the Finnish giant’s previous strengths, including superior optics, and a solid battery life. The first of these is Nokia Maps & Drive, or Nokia Drive, which is the company’s Navteq-powered turn-by-turn voice guided navigation system, complete with 3D maps for 750 cities in India, and 50 voice languages, including Hindi. More maps can of course, be downloaded.
