Nokia Lumia 710 already selling for free at Walmart

Press Lumia 710 group.jpgOnly a month after T-Mobile announced it would be the first carrier in the U.S. to offer a Nokia Windows Phone — the Lumia 710, Walmart has already slashed the price on the phone to free (with contract).

T-Mobile had announced last month that the Lumia 710 would go on sale Jan. 11 for $49.99 (after rebate). T-Mobile’s site still has it listed for $49.99.

The Lumia 710 is the lower-end phone in the Lumia line of Windows Phones that Nokia has introduced. The Lumia 800 is now available in Europe and elsewhere, but not yet in the U.S. Nokia introduced the high-end Lumia 900, to be carried on AT&T at CES last week. The Lumia 900 has already drawn critical praise but Nokia has not yet specified a release date or price for it.
