It doesn't have the chops of the Lumia 800, but I fancy the 710 will probably appeal more to the young and trendy set. Apart from the WP7 chassis specs mandated by Microsoft, the 710 features an FM radio, a decent 3.7" screen, and a 1.4GHz processor - no too shabby. You'll also get the ability to switch the phone covers based on your mood for the day, with in all 10 different colour combinations available. I've no idea whether any of those covers come in the box - it doesn't appear that any do. Still the price is fairly competitive judging from the unsubsidised price of 270 Euros, and Nokia has been nice enough to include turn-by-turn GPS navigation as standard, covering 90+ countries. That alone makes Nokia's offerings enticing, especially for those of us in the boondocks of the world.
