Microsoft and Nokia’s partnership is a chance for both companies to start over and redefine themselves in the smartphone space. So far, we like what we’re seeing. Windows Phone Mango is shaping up quite nicely and one of Nokia’s first phones running Microsoft’s OS will be the ‘Sea Ray,’ which this video gives us a good look at, courtesy of wpcentral. While there’s nothing earth shattering about the phone’s design, it looks pretty sleek and should stand out among the hordes of big-screened phones that dominate the U.S. market.
This video, which is unverified in origin and authenticity, was likely shot in a development factory in China or Hong Kong and shows a version of Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) that looks to be close to a finished release. This is build 7710, according to wpcentral’s sources, which include a foreign message board called wpxap.
If the Sea Ray looks familiar, it should. An almost identical device called the Nokia N9 was unveiled some weeks back as Nokia’s first phone running the new MeeGo operating system. The Sea Ray appears to have an added camera button and a somewhat thicker profile. We have no idea what kind of specs are on the inside, but we’re hoping it’s fast.
