If you’ve already seen Nokia’s limited edition The Dark Knight Rises-themed Lumia 800 and Lumia 900, liked it, and wished for a cheaper version, then here’s a bit of news. Nokia also gave the cheaper Lumia 710 a Dark Knight-themed makeover.
Two things you might want to take a note of, though: 1) the Batman-themed Lumia 710 will only be available as an exclusive on T-Mobile, and 2) it doesn’t look as cool as the Bat-Lumia 800 and 900 that rocked a black case, matching theme and laser-etched Bat-logo at the back.
While the cheaper Windows Phone does come with the same Bat-content such as The Dark Knight Rises wallpaper, themes, and the Gotham City Check-In app, the case itself looks a bit too gimmicky. The themed Lumia 710 will be available in black, white, cyan, yellow and magenta, and will feature a cheaper-looking Dark Knight Rises logo printed at the back. While we don’t doubt that Bat-fans who happen to be in the market for a new smartphone are still going to be all over this, we don’t think anyone’s going to care for the other colors besides the black one. (Who’d want a magenta Bat-phone anyway? )
On the bright side, this won’t be as rare as the super-limited Lumia 800 and 900, nor will it be prohibitively priced. In fact, the limited edition Lumia 710 will be offered for free with a T-Mobile contract. It’s still limited, though, and will be available only if you sign up between June 20 to August 31. If you’re a Bat-fan who already owns a Lumia 710, Nokia is also offering a free The Dark Knight Rises Xpress-On Color Cover that you can order at www.nokiacolorcover.com.
