Nokia was holding a closed door conference to unveil the N9, and an unknown prototype called the “Sea Ray”. Nokia CEO Stephen Elop foolishly asked a crowd of people to “put away their cameras” for the unveiling of something “super confidential”. Naturally, a few people ignored the plea for “no pictures please” and, indeed, someone leaked what appears to be a Nokia-produced video of the unveiling to the blogosphere.
Surprise! It’s Nokia’s first Windows Phone. While it looks nearly identical to the just announced N9, the different LED placement on the back (in line with the same 8 megapixel Carl Zeiss lens) confirms it’s a new device as does the additional hardware button (for shutter release, we presume) along the side. And the fact that it’s running Windows Phone 7 Mango seals the deal. See a few more shots and the full uncut video (and relevant snippet) after the break.
