Hello MNB readers!
Adding to our Nokia Lumia coverage is my very first Unboxing video (ever) of the Lumia 710. The video itself isn’t anything special and was quickly put together but what is special is the value that the Lumia 710 provides, the build quality and access to content. There are some of us that still wish that Nokia would have chosen a different path to success but if we are honest with ourselves, the Lumia line has done more to re-establish the Nokia brand in a POSITIVE light and put Nokia phones into the hands of consumers recently than any other Nokia strategy/OS in recent memory.
It takes positive steps to reach a positive conclusion. I see people’s perception going from “Ewww, Nokia…don’t they make throwaway prepaid phones!?!?!?” To “Wait…that’s a Nokia! Wow, I didn’t know they made modern smartphones” Nokia needs those that would NOT buy a Symbian, Meego, Maemo device to buy a Nokia device and that is what is happening. As a long time Nokia fan, I am all in for Nokia’s success, no matter what “engine” powers Nokia’s smartphone car. WP7 Technical limitations (HDMI, OTG, SD access)? Yes, but that is why I still have my N8…and N900….and C7…..and 5230…wait…why do I still have the 5230..?
Note on the video: Yes, I dropped the phone! :P Gorilla Glass is slippery man!
