changed mind I reccomend over the Radar!

Ok so I need to really think before I post (re my previous posts saying the radar was better). I didnt get enough hands on with this at CES. So I went to the store & exchanged tonight. And the unit you actually get is better then the demo units running in stores too! Besides the lack of Front facing camera I think the Lumia 710 IS better overall then the Radar now. Smile They are still both really similiar but the faster processor and Nokia drive app plus i like the Lumia design are enough in my opinion to make it better. I was thinking the radars camera was better (they both have slightly diff settings) Now I have to give it to the 710. But you cant go wrong really with either one if you want a good wp & your on Tmobile. But I would reccomend ...

So sad to Nokia to see Nokia go with WP7

Should have gone with webOS or Android. Such a shame what was once a great manufacturer have phones has come to. Really Nokia? WP7? SMFH!!
Yeap, ruined what coul have been a good phone. Nokia will either have to eventually switch to Android or exit the smartphone market...

Going with the Radar

Im gonna get the htc radar now instead of the Lumia. I thought I was deadset on the 710 but after reading all the incoming reviews. Others are coming in that the radars camera takes better photos & has a more powerful flash which is impt to me. So I will pick that up at the same price point with tmobile's upcoming sale starting Fri. Plus there offering the 100 dollar trade in offer still & I believe a 25.00 app card. Overall the Radar looks to be the better of the two. and I thought the 710 was gonna be..
How can I find out more about the 100.00 dollar trade in offer and the 25.00 app card? My ATT contract just ended and I want to see how good/bad T-Mobile is.

Meh.

I really liked the look of this phone and the screen that Nokia technology sounds real nice. However after this review I dont think I would be switching to it from my Sensation kinda getting bored of Android and would like to try something different. I hope that when my phone gets ICS it changes my mind about switching to a new OS. xP

Wow, how um... unique and um innovative

Wow a Slab Style Capacitive Touch Screen with Graphic User Interface Multi Media capable, that can push you email to you, download apps utilize widgets. From a has been manufacturer that sold out its own organic OS (Symbian) to run a Window Mobile OS (did they see how well running Windows on a Treo worked for Palm? When they ditched Garnet Based Palm OS to do so.. ) which may I say is behind the curb of Android and iOS ...

What's next? A Blackberry running Windows 7.5?

I kinda liked Symbian and Nokia... But I am SMH on this one... What the heck..

Does the phone you tested have both 3G 1700 and 1900 bands?
