Stephen Elop didn’t want this ending up on the blogosphere but sure enough, here it is. It appears Elop has leaked out a device that may or may not be the company’s first Windows Phone and it looks to be very similar to the MeeGo powered N9 that was announced just a short time ago.
Codenamed Sea Ray, it’s supposedly going to feature Gorilla Glass, a camera button, a minimalist form factor, and an 8 megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens. Oh, and it’s going to be running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. Other than that, we only know that the phone is supposedly going to “blow our socks off.”
Now, don’t get too excited yet. Elop also notes that there are several other Windows Phone 7 devices that Nokia has going on so it’s possible that we might see something else launch in place of what you see here.
And as for a release date, October 26th is currently the popular date for the companies to announce this thing. Why? Because October 26th is the first day of the Nokia World Conference.
What do you guys think? Sold on this as Nokia’s first Windows Phone 7 device?
