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.

    why does it sound like they were filming this at a shooting range? lol…..anyways I think the phone looks pretty sleek as far as hardware. It seems to run pretty smoothly and the camera looked fairly decent, but I won’t know that until I see an actual picture taken with it. I am seriously considering getting this phone when it comes out at the end of this year(?), assuming that Nokia doesnt make anything better soon after. Only one little problem with that though, my provider is MetroPCS and for like the past year they’ve been on nothing but an Android streak of phones being released and haven’t released even one Windows Phone, most likely cuz its “not popular enough.” Its not fair to the people who want an alternative smartphone besides an Android or iPhone. They can’t have what they want because other people don’t like it. Here’s something to think about: The only way something cannot get popular is if you aren’t selling any devices for people to promote and MAKE it more popular (assuming they like it that is). Hopefully they will reconsider once Nokia starts manufacturing their phones later on ths year and next year. With the Mango update and Nokia hardware, Windows Phone just may boost MetroPCS’s sales up more than they would expect it to. I mean hell, US Cellular is right behind MetroPCS as far as being one of the top 5 largest phone providers and they already have a Windows Phone that people seem to be particularly satisfied with based on the reviews I’ve read on their website. So why is MetroPCS being so hesitant on getting one? MetroPCS is wanting to provide more higher end LTE 4G phones, but they aren’t going to do that if they keep offering the same lower end performing Android phones they have been doing for the past year or so that some people don’t seem to be particularly fond of. All they are doing is changing the hardware, not the software. If they want more business, then they need to offer up more of a variety of phones to choose from, particularly an Android/Windows Phone mixed variety, that way everyone can get what they want.
