Nokia Sea Ray Windows Phone Gets Video Previewed

By Sindre Lia, Tuesday 19 July 2011
 
Nokia's first Windows Phone, codenamed Sea Ray and running Mango Build 7710, has received a short, highly unofficial video preview.

Are you waiting for the first Windows Phone from Nokia? Well, the device Nokia CEO Stephen Elop showcased internally last month, codenamed Sea Ray, has now appeared in a short video preview on a Windows forum in Asia.

Like we reported last month, we expected that the Sea Ray would be in accordance with Microsoft's guidelines when it comes to hardware shortcut buttons. That's something the video below confirms. As the smartphone is expected to run a second-generation Snapdragon processor, which is the recommended chipset for Windows Phone Mango, we imagine the Sea Ray will primarily use Carl Zeiss optics to differentiate itself from other Windows Phones:



Nokia Sea Ray Windows Phone A Hungarian tech blog last month posted a video of Stephen Elop showcasing the Sea Ray, though he never turned it on. The video preview above shows the smartphone running Windows Phone Mango Build 7710. According to WPCentral, this is an RTM build, though it'll take quite some time before it ends up in store shelves.

That said, the fact that the Sea Ray is now running a RTM build could be the reason why Nokia is now certain that it'll be released by the end of 2011. Industry sources last month told Digitimes that Compal has landed some orders for Windows Phone smartphones from Nokia, with shipments to begin in Q4 2011. That's hopefully also when the Nokia N9 will hit store shelves.

The first Windows Phone by Nokia will initially appear in Europe and possibly Australia. On the latter continent, it's expected to be offered by Vodafone, Telstra and Optus. In Europe, the Sea Ray will initially be sold in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain - by carriers such as Vodafone, Orange and Movistar.
