Nokia’s First Windows Phone Device Revealed

Pictures and details about Nokia’s first Windows Phone powered device has leaked to the internet today giving us a glimpse of the new smartphone. Codenamed “Sea Ray,” the phone is based on Nokia’s recent N9 phone, but slightly modified.

Nokia unveiled the N9 phone recently and the phone packs a punch. The N9 includes a 1-GHz Cortex A8 processor, an 8-MP auto-focus camera, 16 GB or 64 GB of storage, 1 GB of RAM, anti-glare glass, and many other cool features. Nokia showed off the N9 in an event in Singapore, but the phone was running MeeGo, the love child of Nokia and Intel’s partnership.

But what about the partnership with Microsoft? I thought we were going to see Windows Phone powered Nokia handsets? “Our primary smartphone strategy is to focus on the Windows phone. I have increased confidence that we will launch our first device based on the Windows platform later this year and we will ship our product in volume in 2012,” Nokia CEO Steven Elop stated.

Screenshots of the new Sea Ray phone were leaked to the internet and are reportedly from Nokia employees who were shown a preview of the device by Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, before he told them to turn off their cameras.

Apparently Nokia will not ship new Windows Phones until the Mango update is ready. Take a look below for a quick overview of the Sea Ray (images courtesy of Technet.hu:
