Nokia Lumia 710 coming soon to Orange

Screen Shot 2012-01-03 at 19.02.18

If you are in the market for a new Windows Mango Phone but don’t want the expense of the Lumia 800 then it’s good news as I have just seen the 710 on the Orange ‘coming soon’ page.

I used the Lumia 710 back at Nokia World and while it doesn’t have the same amazing build quality of the 800 it is still a real beauty with interchangeable back covers that the youngsters will love.

Specs wise it is pretty decent too, with a 3.7 inch display, 5 megapixel camera, HD video recording and not forgetting Nokia Drive so free satellite navigation.

You can see full specs below:

BlackBerry PlayBook price drop

Screen Shot 2012-01-03 at 11.18.45

If you are in the market for a 7 inch tablet the BlackBerry PlayBook may well be worth considering. At most UK retailers you can pick up the 16GB model for only £169.

Worth baring in mind though is that at the moment you can only take full advantage of all its features if you have a BlackBerry Smartphone, but luckily here in the UK millions of you have.

The price drop is down from £399 so quite a saving. With version 2.0 of the QNX powered tablet software on the horizon we also mustn’t forget that Android applications will be supported soon.

If you are a regular reader of our site, or listen to our podcast, you will know I still love my PlayBook and it is my tablet of choice.

Why not pop into Carphone Warehouse, Currys, Dixons etc and see if you can get a test drive. I think you may be quite pleasantly surprised.
