Announcing the Sea Ray, Nokia’s first Windows Phone

At an internal event earlier this morning, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop showed off his company’s first Windows Phone to a group of Nokia employees. He asked everyone to “put away [their] cameras and turn off [their] recording devices” because it is “super confidential and [Nokia does] not want to see it in the blogosphere.” As one might expect, the exact opposite happened.

The device, codenamed “Sea Ray,” is almost exactly the same as the beautiful Nokia N9, which the company showed off earlier this week. It is equipped with Gorilla Glass and an 8MP Carl Zeiss lens. The Nokia N9 includes a front facing camera, so WMPoweruser believes the Sea Ray will as well.

Part of the video can be watched above, but the full 21-minute recording can only be seen at The site has had a few difficulties with streaming, but LiveSide was able to watch the whole thing. Supposedly, the Sea Ray will “ship with a full suite of Nokia applications, including Nokia Drive & Maps, an application that allows existing Nokia customers to transfer contacts to the new Nokia Windows Phone, localized apps based on specific geographies, and many more.”

The Sea Ray is only the first of many Nokia Windows Phones, with early reports claiming twelve devices between 2011 and 2012. The Finnish company is rumored to be launching its first wave of Windows Phone handsets at the Nokia World 2011 conference on October 26.
