Canadian carrier WIND is set to launch the Lumia 710 tomorrow, May 3rd. We previously covered the rumours pointing to an early May release for the Windows Phone, and now those who have been waiting eagerly will be able to pick one up. The Lumia 710 is to be priced at a reasonable $259 without contract, or for $99 on the WINDtab with the WIND25 and $0 on the WINDtab with the WIND40 monthly plan.
Emails have been sent out to early ordering customers with information detailing the upcoming launch, including the above pricing.
The Lumia 710 (see our in-depth review) packs a 1.4GHz CPU, a 3.7" ClearBlack screen and a 5MP camera - perfect for anyone who requires a budget Windows Phone.

Or amazon for 230$ lol
yeah even Rogers seems to be selling it for $230
That's with an activation. And WIND will give the unlock code for free. Perfect for somebody like me, whose carrier (Bell) currently has no WP devices...
I have the 710 since 4 weeks now and I am pretty happy. Before that I had a HD2 with WP7 on it and wanted to keep it until Apollo is released but the screen quit on me. No wow factor here but the 710 is a good device with basically the same hardware that the 900 sports for a reasonable price so it will keep me going for a while.
I like how the screen is the same color as the device and it has physical buttons. Hmmm, might be a good buy for the gf to replace the Surround. Hell I like it enough for me.
