Nokia CEO Stephen Elop was speaking to a gathering of people somewhere (we’re not quite sure where) when he decided to show off a top secret device. He asked everyone to put away their cameras before he showed it, and of course everyone complied. Well, except for someone who kept video rolling the entire time and then TechNet.hu got a hold of it. Oops.
Codenamed “Sea Ray”, the “top secret” device to be shown off was Nokia’s first Windows Phone 7 handset. Bearing a striking resemblance to the recently announced Nokia N9, and even sporting the same 8 megapixel Carl Zeiss lens, the only really notable differences are the addition of an additional button for the camera and the LED on the back has been moved. Otherwise it just appears that the company took the N9 and put Windows Phone 7 Mango on it.
You can check out a complete walkthrough of the new device below. (Taken with, you know, a camera that was put away.) Please note that the video takes some time to show up due to heavy traffic.
Later in the video Mr. Elop did state that this is just the first device, and that more are close to being ready to go. He didn’t give any indication when those would be debuted, but we’re sure that he’ll ask everyone to put their cameras away when he does eventually show them off.
What do you think of the “Sea Ray”?
