Did you think an N9 clone would bask in all the Windows Phone sunlight at Nokia World 2011? Not at all -- it's sharing the shine with the Nokia Lumia 710, a far more affordable smartphone. For €270 (about $375) unsubsidized, the 710 has a 3.7-inch 800 x 480 LCD, 1.4GHz processor, 512MB internal memory and GPU as its pricier cousin. It also features 8GB of storage, a 5-megapixel camera, a 1300mAh battery good for 6.9 hours of talk time, quad-band 14.4Mbps HSDPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, and A-GPS. The plastic body comes in both black and white and there is a small spectrum of colorful (and swappable) rear covers to choose from -- black, white, cyan, fuchsia, and yellow.

It'll be available first in Asia, with Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan before the end of the year. There's no word on a confirmed US release. You can get a glimpse of Nokia's exclusive Windows Phone software, including Nokia Drive turn-by-turn directions, in our Nokia Lumia 800 post.
