Both the Nokia Lumia 800 and the Lumia 710 officially went on sale today in India, marked by a special event at the Nokia Store in Gurgaon’s Ambience Mall.
As you can imagine, the store was packed to the hilt and there was a Lumia 800 shaped cake to go along with the festivities.
The icing on the cake was that those who had pre-orded their devices at that particular store, walked away with a free XBOX 360 along with their shiny new Lumia 800. To top that, Nokia has also invited Tennis star Sania Mirza over for the sales kick-off.
Officially, the Lumia 800 priced at 29,999 and the 710 at a cool Rs. 18,999 but I suspect that the market operating price would be slightly less.
I quite like the Lumia 800, and you can find my hands on here. The Lumia 710 being 11,000 INR cheaper than the Lumia 800 presents a lot of value for money, specially because it has much of the same internals and processing power as its elder sibling; hands on here.
Are you planning on picking up either of these devices anytime soon?
