Nokia’s first Windows Phone “Sea Ray” caught on video again
Nokia’s debut Windows Phone Mango smartphone has been sneakily caught on camera again, this time without the presence of CEO Stephen Elop.
A video has popped up on YouTube showing the Nokia “Sea Ray” Windows Phone being played with briefly at what we’re assuming is a production plant. The handset looks very similar to Nokia’s MeeGo-based N9 smartphone, featuring the same rounded edges and sleek body, plus the chromed central camera on the back.
Our demonstrator takes the handset out of a rather chunky case and proceeds to give it a twirl for the camera. Interestingly, the case appears to have a cut-out on the front for a front-facing video camera. Though we can’t make out one on the phone itself in the video, we’re certain it will have one.
We can see clearly there will be two volume rocker buttons, a power and a camera button located on the right edge of the phone, and a 3.5mm headphone socket and USB connection on the top.
The familiar three hardware buttons for Windows Phone 7 are located at the bottom of the phone, though they appear to be faux-touch style with a backlit glow.
We get a brief look at the boot sequence which involves a custom “7” logo, the menu structure and the camera features which look pretty neat. When our demonstrator turns the phone off, we see a screen full of Mangoes and the “slide down to power off” message. We’re taking this as a dead cert that the device is running the developer build of the new Windows Phone Mango.
