Mobile phone giant Nokia gave a sneak peek of its first Windows Phone 7 at a Nokia event held in Singapore and promised that they are working on more devices that will support the OS.
Nokia’s chief executive officer Stephen Elop showed the device codenamed “Sea Ray” to the event’s attendees in what seemed to be an impromptu unveiling, he seemed oblivious to the sneaky guys from TechNet who snapped this picture.
Sea Ray’s design is based on the new Nokia N9, which has been announced earlier this week. The N9 device runs the Meego platform which was developed by Intel and Nokia.
The Sea Ray, like the N9, has an 8-megapixel camera and is built with a Gorilla Glass screen. The device will run the new Windows Phone 7 ‘Mango’ OS when it ships.
A representative from Nokia, Jukka Kuuskinen, demonstrated the features of the Windows Phone 7 and how it works on the Sea Ray. He also demonstrated how Office applications can be used on a smaller smartphone screen.
Kiiskinen said that applications like Nokia Maps will be included with Sea Ray when it ships and they will provide a way to transfer contacts from one mobile device to the new phones.
It appears that the phone won’t have any difference to other phones that run the Windows Phone 7 platform. Rumors say that in October, Nokia will launch its first devices that run Windows Phone 7 at a Nokia event in London.
