Rogers has just announced the availability of the UMA-enabled Nokia 7510 in Canada.

Rogers Nokia 7510

For the uninitiated, the UMA capability of the Nokia 7510 allows users to seamlessly switch between a WiFi (Rogers TalkSpot) and a GSM connection depending on which network type is available. Thus, subscribers get the benefit of unlimited talk time at home via WiFi while at the same time enjoying the benefits of a regular mobile phone when on the road. Apart from that truly unique and practical feature, the Nokia 7510 also comes with a 2-megapixel camera with flash and video recording capabilities, OSS browser, Xpress-on changeable covers, and a 512MB microSD card as part of the package.

The Nokia 7510 retails for $49.99 on a 3-year contract and is available at Rogers Wireless retail locations across the nation. It may not be a touchscreen phone like the 5800 XpressMusic nor is it anywhere near the caliber of the E71, but what you do get with this Nokia UMA flip-phone is the chance to talk more for less of the usual price.
