Nokia’s first Windows Phone device has leaked out once again.
Nokia CEO Stephen Elop demonstrated the device at an internal company meeting last month but didn’t go too deep into specifics. The device, codenamed Sea Ray, is expected to be available later this year. The design of the device appears to be identical to the recently announced Nokia N9, powered by MeeGo. The device is”super confidential” at this stage and features gorilla glass, pillow shaped backing and a carl ziess 8MP camera. The secret nature of the device hasn’t stopped it leaking however. WPCentral spotted a Chinese video of ‘Sea Ray’ booting up into Windows Phone 7.5. The video demo (shown below) provides a good hands on for the new device. The product is Nokia’s first Windows Phone device and will be available later this year when the company releases a batch of Windows Phone Mango devices.
Nokia recently revealed that it is planning to hold the annual Nokia World conference on October 26-27 in London. The timing matches up with a possible Windows Phone Nokia device launch date. Nokia World is typically used to launch new products before the holiday season. Nokia has previously revealed that the company plans to launch its first Windows Phones in six European countries. Nokia plans to launch first in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK and the Netherlands. Nokia’s Windows Phone devices are currently labeled with “W” (for Windows). Nokia is also rumored to be launching a dual-core N8 variant with a 12MP camera, QWERTY touchscreen candy bar phone and a cheaper touchscreen device with less expensive body.
