Now it’s just getting goofy, no matter where you live in the continental 48 you can get a Nokia Lumia 710 for “free” (ok Costco is a penny). With Costco and Walmart giving the 710 away it will either go one of two ways.
- Featurephone users will easily upgrade to a Nokia smartphone and love it or
- The you get what you pay for crowd will assume it’s a junk phone because it’s free. (Ok, ok there is 3rd option)
- Some people calling it cheap and worth about what you paid for it. With some people being impressed and starting a new generation of Nokia loving phone users.
I am thinking that number 3 is going to be what happens with 710 which is to be expected. I think the 710 will do exactly what Nokia wants it to do, get people back “in the door” when it comes to Nokia phones.
