Smart is beefing up it's line of smartphones as they introduce Nokia devices running Microsoft's Windows Phone to more Filipinos.

Smart is targeting people across all economic classes, be it the young minds with tight budgets, or the people who wants the premium devices.

"We’re giving Filipinos the full-range of choices.  Whether entry-level, mid-range or high-end, our portfolio of Windows-powered Nokia phones enable our subscribers to get the right device at the right price and enjoy it with the country’s most powerful cellular network," said Smart Broadband Internet and Data Services Head Gio Bacareza.

The first Nokia device with Windows Phone to be available from Smart is the mid-range Nokia Lumia 710. People can have it for only P450/month for 24 months on their Limited Edition Data Plan 1000 - which gives them 500 SMS to all networks, 500 minutes of calls to Smart and Talk 'N Text, and of course 1 GB of data. The Nokia Lumia 710 can take advantage of Smart's HSPA+ networks and it can handle up to 14.4 Mbps of data speeds. The 3.7-inch screen and the Internet Explorer 9 will let you surf the web as if you're using your PC.

"That’s just P10,800 for a full-fledged Windows phone,” said Bacareza. “Plus, with the limited edition Plan 1000 the first ‘Lumia-naries’ in the country can maximize the capabilities of this wonderful phone," he added.
