Images of Nokia’s very first smartphone powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS appear to have leaked this morning, thanks to Hungarian blog TechNet.hu, and the device, well, looks very much like Nokia’s N9 handheld.
The images appear to have come from some type of presentation by Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, and they were posted along with a video of Elop showing off the device just after telling everyone in attendance to turn off their cameras. (See the video below) Obviously, at least one attendee decided not to heed that instruction.
The device is apparently codenamed “Sea Ray,” but few other official details on technical specifications or release dates are available—Nokia did, however, recently say that its first Windows Phone devices should ship this sometime this fall. And this device looks to be running the upcoming version of the Windows Phone OS, dubbed “Mango.”
