T-Mobile USA announces availability of Nokia 7510 Supernova Series 40 device
I have been a T-Mobile USA customer for almost 7 years now and keep using them because I have 4 family plan cell phones and my home phone (T-Mobile Talk Forever VoIP phone) with them. T-Mobile just announced that the Nokia 7510 Supernova is now available for T-Mobile USA. I am a bit excited to get a hold of this device and post my thoughts here because it is a Nokia Series 40 device and I haven’t had a chance to try this OS out yet.
The Nokia 7510 is a flip phone, popular in the U.S., that is focused on style with three changeable faceplates (espresso brown, fatal red, and emerald green) and a hidden-until-lit external front display. The Nokia 7510 also has a 2 megapixel camera with video capture and playback functionality and a microSD card slot for storage. A FM radio is on board along with Bluetooth and WiFi radios. The display sounds great with a 2.2 inch 320×240 resolution and support for 16 million colors.
Another great feature of this device is that it supports T-Mobile’s Hotspot UMA calling service. This means when you add this feature to your account you can make and receive all the calls you want when connected to a WiFi hotspot. To top it off you get free HotSpot access at all T-Mobile supported locations. If you don’t add this monthly service then you can still make calls via WiFi, but you will be charged for the minutes against your cell phone voice plan. I tested this HotSpot @Home service in the past with some lame basic phones and it is nice to see higher quality devices supporting this unique service.
The Nokia 7510 is available now for only US$49.99 with a two-year service agreement.
