New Nokia Sea Ray prototype with Windows Phone Mango caught on video
If you care about Nokia’s future, you’ve probably heard of the Nokia Sea Ray, which might become the company’s first (released) Windows Phone handset. Initially showcased by Stephen Elop about a month ago, the Sea Ray has now appeared in a new video, most likely shot in a factory somewhere in South East Asia.
The handset seen in the video obviously runs Windows Phone Mango, and seems to be a prototype – this would explain the apparent lack of a front-facing camera.
Despite previous rumors to the contrary, the Sea Ray has three capacitive buttons (Back, Home and Search), which can be clearly spotted in the video:
As mentioned more than once before, the Sea Ray resembles the MeeGo-based Nokia N9. Which means it is a nice piece of hardware. And with Mango bringing lots of new features to improve WP7, the Sea Ray has lots of chances to become a great smartphone.
From what we’ve heard until now, the Nokia Sea Ray (or whatever it will be called eventually) should be officially introduced before the end of the year.
