A Mom’s Little Helper: Nokia’s Lumia 710 Phone {Review and Giveaway!}

I got my first smartphone about 3 years ago and I haven’t looked back! How did I function without this? It’s my way of connecting with friends and family, it’s entertainment, it’s my camera, my music and my source of news all rolled up into one little machine.

Most Moms feel that need to be connected at all times. I recently was able to review the perfect sidekick for Mom!

I reviewed the Nokia Lumia 710 Smartphone which is a Windows Phone on the T-Mobile network. This phone is designed to be completely personalized for you and best of all, it’s highly affordable.

For as low as $49.99, Mom and anyone else in the family can have a smartphone! It’s perfect for the family on a budget.

I love that you can personalize both the inside and the outside of the phone to express you! Available in both a black or white finish, there are different colored backs you can choose from!

I’ve been rocking the yellow back on my Lumia 710 Smartphone!

The Lumia 710 almost seems like it’s been designed for Moms. It features a 3.7-inch ClearBlack WVGA scratch-resistant display (for those curious toddlers!) that provides outstanding outdoor viewing and a Qualcomm 1.4 GHz Snapdragon(TM) processor providing speedy access to entertainment and information on-the-go! That means no more meltdowns in waiting rooms or in lines!

For the Mom that is always taking pictures of their sweet children {raises hand!} the Lumia 710 features a 5 megapixel camera that allows you to take great pictures both indoor and outdoor. Best of all, you’re able to quickly share those pictures on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks in under 5 seconds.

I love that the phone offers the Windows “Live Tiles”. You’ll know right away if someone has emailed you, posted on your Facebook wall or mentioned you in a tweet.

Since it’s a Windows Phone, you’re able to access everything in your Windows Skydrive and even work in Microsoft Office – all from your phone!

You’re also going to love the great apps in the Windows Marketplace that are exclusive for Nokia Windows Phone users – like Seasame Street Workshop!

If you’re on the T-Mobile network, you should definitely check out this phone – it’s got everything you need!

  22. Jennifer Calabro says

    My current phone is ultra sensitive and I have constant issues with my service. I think this phone would simplify my life because it looks so simple to use and I can switch my service to T-Mobile, much better than what I have now! And I definitely can’t afford a new one right now.

    I confess I would give this to my husband. We are trying to make ends meet with 5 kids and one salary. He is a professor and it is a lot like being a mom. Lots of stuff to do without much structure to do it in. He has such a hard time keeping track of whether he is coming or going.

    I don’t have a smartphone so it would help keep track of pretty much everything… I’d use it for school with Windows OS and Microsoft Office. The Nokia Drive GPS would help when I’m driving as I don’t have a GPS… and the social networking would help for when I’m on the go.
