The first images of what is to be Nokia’s first Windows Phone 7 device have leaked to the public. The design is essentially identical to that of the recently announced Nokia N9 (powered by MeeGo), however the images clearly show both the device running Windows Phone 7 and a different LED placement plus camera button on the body that give away it is not simply a fake superimposed image of the N9 running WP7.
Taking a look at the video (21 minute version here) provided by Hungarian site technetblog, and you’ll see Nokia CEO Stephen Elop delivering a private and confidential meeting to a group of people eagerly awaiting images of something codenamed “Sea Ray.” Despite Elop’s emphasis on not taking any photos due to the confidentiality, a member of the crowd managed to snap some shots and video of the “Sea Ray” device presentation, which turned out to be of one of Nokia’s upcoming Windows Phone devices.
There is not much else known about the device other than it is visually similar to the Nokia N9, which has a 3.9-inch 480x854 AMOLED display, 8 MP rear camera with LED flash and a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 based TI OMAP 3630 processor on the inside. While the WP7 prototype shown off looks visually similar to the N9, it will not be the same internally as the N9 fails the WP7 hardware requirements (wrong screen resolution, unsupported processor); it is unknown whether the prototype shown at the briefing meets these specifications yet.
More on Nokia’s Windows Phone 7 portfolio should be revealed at their Nokia World Conference on October 36-27 in London, where it is believed the company will launch their first WP7 devices.
