Nokia Lumia 710 and 800 Windows Phones leaked [Update]

Nokia is set to reveal its first Windows Phones to the world at its Nokia World convention tomorrow in London. Pictures of one handset, the Lumia 800 (known previously by its development codename ‘Sea Ray’), have been leaking all over the place, and now a new leak revealed to WinRumors appears to confirm that Nokia will also be launching a second device, known as the Lumia 710.

The Lumia 710 carries the tagline ‘designed around you’. Its 12.5mm-thick body includes 512MB of RAM and 8GB storage. It appears that the image states that there is "no SD Slot". It’s available in both black and white versions, and it appears to have physical front buttons, rather than the capacitive touch versions that feature more commonly on Windows Phone devices.

The Lumia 800 is tagged as offering 'continuous entertainment'. The dimensions quoted for this device (116.5 x 61.2 x 12.1mm) precisely match those of the MeeGo-powered Nokia N9. There’s 512MB of RAM again, but again no slot for a microSD card. No details are given on the on-board storage capacity here.

The images here appear to show either a website or interactive application of some sort (note the different selectable areas - Design, Hardware, Media), but it’s interesting that there’s very little consistency between the way information is laid out on the slide for each handset (details are given in different order, the depth of information differs between the two handsets, labeling is slightly different).

As with any leaks or rumours, it's best to take these with a pinch of salt, but at least there’s not too long to wait before we find out for sure if these are the real deal - the new devices will be announced in Stephen Elop’s keynote address tomorrow morning (0900, London time). They're expected to go on sale in several European markets within a couple of weeks - but US buyers will likely have to wait until 2012 before they get their first Nokia Windows Phones.

Update: It's worth highlighting (as no-one seems to have yet noticed) that the reverse of the Lumia 710 in the images above appears to be bright yellow. As far as the Lumia 800 goes, we've been led to believe it'll only be available in blue, pink and black. The yellow reverse of the 710 might indicate more colour options available for that model. The brightly coloured back of the handset is a bit more visible in this colour-saturated crop:

Not a good thing to highlight missing features...

I think its a feature of WP7...

And its better to state something than to have people assume... After all what was the last major Nokia phone to not take an SD card

Or.... they could be hinting us that Nokia 900 will have uSD slot.. Hmmm..

I like the look of the 800 much more than the 710. Something about the 710's corner curvature looks dated to me .

I agree. I can't quite put my finger on it - I think it reminds me of one of the old Windows Mobile XDAs from HTC!

As lumia means snow in Finnish, it would seem appropriate the phones come in white too. Just avoid the yellow ones!

mmmm. no?

Guys, don't be surprised because of the missing features. Nokia is aiming the low-end market, like it always did, so most of WP7 phones will probably be cheap, and only 2-3 models on the high-end. This is how they had that huge market share before, much more people are likely to get a cheap but also smart phone instead of a "mini computer". If Nokia manages to offer high battery life with these phones, they'll be successful. My 2 cents.

Nokia had always provided long battery life, even with their "smartphones" like the N97, which I am still using. If they get the battery life great on this as well then this will be a major option.

What a weird thing to put in the feature list that the device doesn't have SD slot, unless they want to make a difference between one that has it and one that doesn't

just a hint, the N9 comes in both 16 (pinkish, blue or black) and 64 GB (black only) versions

Not saying the 800 will be 64GB but would make sense I guess

Not much effort for design here it seems. Just took the old E7/N9 etc chassis and crammed WP7 into it and went with lopsided ugly for the 710. While I think the E7 design is distinctive and pretty good looking, Nokia will have a harder time differentiating the new ones from the old ones.

it hardly would be popular due to lack of software for wp7. almost nothing - poor social networking, poor instant messaging, no good maps, no transportation programs, no daylife programs etc etc

Last time I checked on my WP7 (2 seconds ago) the social networking was all in my people hub. Twitter, Facebook, live, how is that poor social networking? Poor instant messaging? SMS, Facebook and WLM messages all come to the messages hub. no idea where you get your information from lol.

Just Facebook. I don't know a single person who use it. Everyone is on VK and Odnoklassniki here. There is one, but poor VK client, but it's a lot worse than top 5 VK clients for Android.
No ICQ and MRA. Nobody is using SMS here. Either no one heard of WLM. ICQ, MRA and Jabber (QIP, Yandex, LJ, GTlak, VK) are popular IM protocols in Russia.

Either didn't found a single shopping client for WP7, didn't found transportation programs (rounting, commuter trains schedule etc). Though there is seems cinema client within Yandex Hub, but pretty weak either.

etc etc etc

Why do they even bother with the 710. The 800 looks like a killer smarthphone already. They should market it like other smartphones are irrelevant.

800 = Nokia N9 remake
710 = Nokia 603 remake

Hence you'd expect the Nokia 710 will have changeable back covers (like the yellow one), just like Nokia 603.
