The announcement of the phone marks the first Nokia Windows Phone to make it to U.S. soil, and also the first Windows phone in general to be billed as a 4G device, running on T-Mobile's HSPA 14.4 network.
The Lumia 710 was officially announced in late October at Nokia World in London. Spec-wise the handset has a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, a 3.7-inch ClearBlack display, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities, and 8GB of built-in storage.
The phone comes pre-loaded with Nokia Drive, Nokia's free turn-by-turn direction service, as well as one-click access to services like Netflix and Twitter.
Color-wise, the phone will be available in black and white, with optional colored back plates available in all of the Windows Phone tile colors.
The Lumia 710 will be available in T-Mobile stores starting January 11 for US$49.99, with a new two-year agreement and after a $50 mail-in-rebate.
The Lumia 800, the other Windows Phone Nokia announced in October, is also rumored to be making a U.S. appearance soon, with an announcement likely at CES.
