Nokia’s Windows Phone 7 ‘Sea Ray’ Taken Out Of Testing Shell

It would seem that Nokia is having a hard time keeping things under wraps when it comes to their recently leaked Windows Phone 7 device, the ‘Sea Ray’. First unveiled by CEO, Stephen Elop in a “super confidential” showing, the Sea Ray carries the same design cues at the Nokia N9, save for a few external changes such as camera component arrangement as well as the addition of camera key.

In what appears to be an assembly factory, the ‘Sea Ray’ is removed from a bulky disguise case, taken for a quick hardware tour and is turned on. A new “7” boot animation as well as many other subtle UI changes indicate the device is running the ‘Mango’ build of Windows Phone 7. The usual front facing capacitive buttons, Back, Home and ¬†Search are present along with a covered microUSB port on the top, a domed power button and 3.5mm headphone jack. Presumably the third side button below the volume keys is for locking and unlocking the device.

Although this won’t be the first device to have Mango on it, the Sea Ray is rumored to be Nokia’s first Windows Phone 7 device to launch and is said to be available in the coming 2012 year. A step off of the proverbial ‘burning platform‘ and into cold waters. A ray ¬†of light in a cold and dark sea. Hopefully it can keep the company afloat.
