In a late night press release Nokia Canada revealed where the next two Windows Phone devices will end up. Rogers will be getting the Lumia 710, TELUS will release the Lumia 800. Specifically regarding the Rogers release, this will exclusively be available in black and hit stores as part of their “Smartphone Lite” category this February for $49.99 on a 3-year plan. No word on the no-term price.

Specs have this entry level device coming with Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, 3.7-inch display (resolution of 800 x 480), 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 5 MP camera that captures 720p video HD videos with auto focus, LED flash, 512MB program memory and 8GB internal user memory. The LUmia 710 also comes with access to the Windows Marketplace and Nokia Drive.

    I am on Rogers and am looking forward to a WP. However, not sure the 710 is enough horsepower for my inner tech nerd (which never gets close to using the potential of my phones, really). Regardless, here’s to hoping the 900 is close behind.

      Your inner tech nerd should also understand that the software is well codded and designed to make use of the maximum software. I think if Rogers has this phone on a 2 year plan like the states, it will sell very well.

      how do you know it is well coded? Did you check the source code?

    Sigh, while Bell and Telus get higher end phones like the Galaxy Note and Lumia 800.. Rogers is doing jumping jacks and clapping their hands with the Lumia 710 😐

    Your GSM exclusivity is OVER… You once had the best smartphone line up, then you handed that crown over to Bell… Now it seems that even Telus is going to trump you.


    Worthy yourself and bring out the Titan II or the Lumia 900

      You know what’s even worse than their line up? Choosing a cellphone when you’re with Fido.

      You got the choice : a shitty LG with a keybaord on a 2 years contract or the iPhone 4S or the Galaxy Nexus

    Typical ROGERS buyer bottom of the barrel phones

    My comment was directed at myself, not the phone (as in I do not use my phones in such a manner to actually need all the bells and whistles).

    I am still thinking the 900 is Rogers bound. Maybe an overly optimistic hope!

      the one downside with text, its hard to hear the context and tone of the person’s voice without seeing them! I understand :)…it makes sense if the 900 goes to rogers because of LTE

    Rogers is a piece of junk. Period.

    Nice Telus, just take my money already for that lumia 800 🙂

  • vieagle

    I’m just glad that we are getting a couple of new phones in Canada. Can always buy any phone outright for those that are complaining and unlock it:)

    Bad move here Rogers.
    The Lumia 800 is a much more interesting device. I hope you secured the Lumia 900. That would explain you apparent lack of judgement.

    Bell = forever alone

    Hope bell gets the Nokia lumia 900
