Revealed! Nokia CEO Reveals Company’s First Windows Phone on Video

It’s almost unbelievable, but it’s true. Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has been caught on video asking a crowd to put away their cameras and turn off their recording devices because he’s about to show something top secret and he doesn’t want it to hit the blogosphere. Oops!

Apparently, what he showed was a device code-named “Sea Ray” – and it’s Nokia’s first Windows Phone!

At first glance, Nokia’s Windows Phone looks a lot like its just-announced MeeGo-powered device, the N9. But Engadget, MyNokiBlog and others have spotted a few differences. For example, different LED light placements on the back and an extra hardware button on the side.

The question now is whether this was an intentional or even a staged leak on Nokia’s part, after all the good press it got about the N9’s design, or did Elop really think people would simply turn off their cameras when asked?

The full, uncut video is posted here.
