Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the first Nokia WP7 device. Introduced by no other than the company CEO, Stephen Elop in what he thought was a camera-free environment. Despite his confidentiality plea someone couldn't resist the temptation and shared a few photos and a quick video with us.
We don't know if Stephen Elop is really so naive as to believe that no one will take a shot of one of the most hotly anticipated devices of the year or this is just a clever way to gain some publicity, but it doesn't matter really. What matter is that we got to see first Nokia WP7 handset a few months ahead of its official announcement.
And here it comes - Nokia's first WP7 device codenamed Sea Ray (possibly the W8-00):
As you can see the device is very similar to the recently announced Nokia N9, but has a dedicated hardware camera key, different LED placement and, of course, it is running on Windows Phone 7 with the Mango update.
So, there you have it - Nokia has at least one sweet-looking Windows Phone 7 smartphone in the pipeline. We'll have to wait more for the official announcement and see if there will be another device to join it.
Here is a short extract from the original video:

I will not buy 400+ USD phones which don't have Gorilla glass and memory card slot.
decent specs with NFC .... takes me 20 mins to be very familiar with the UI & navigates smoothly. Coming soon to S'pore in early September .... not too sure about M'sia though
The Nokia WP7 is taking forever to be released. Rapidly losing my patience.
