Nokia Lumia 710 (T-Mobile), October 26, 2011
We all wondered if Nokia was making the right decision when it introduced the $50 Lumia 710, a budget smartphone, as its first U.S. Windows phone. The company's strategy seems to have paid off, since the Lumia 710 isn't just a likeable phone, but also a moderate hit.
Samsung Focus Flash (AT&T), November 4, 2011
Another $50-at-launch phone with a Super AMOLED screen, the Focus Flash is a terrific budget Windows Phone with the complete package: dual cameras, a fast 1.4GHz processor, and a surprisingly strong speakerphone. I also like the classy design and the support for HSPA+, which was AT&T's fastest data network before it launched LTE, after the phone's release.
Cnet has been surprisingly supportive of WP and especially the lumia 900. It was voted best of show at CES, it's always to be found somewhere on their home page! Like last week they did a top 5 gifts for mother's day, and the Lumia 900 was in there :D
