Nokia Sea Ray: The N9 that runs Windows Phone 7

Will this Nokia Windows Phone 7 be the final nail in Meego’s coffin?

In a “super confidential” presentation this morning, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop asked a crowd of attendees to put their cameras away before unveiling a Windows Phone-powered device with overwhelming resemblance to the N9, codenamed ‘Sea Ray’.

Other than a slightly different LED placement on the back of ‘Sea Ray’, the device is almost a mirror image of the N9 — it even uses the same 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss lens. There is however, a hardware button, presumably for shutter release, along the side.

While we’re certainly enthusiastic about the possibility a device similar to the N9 running Windows Phone 7, but it may also be that the device is still a prototype. And they may change the look to keep N9 market separate. Else Sea Ray will become a direct competitor of N9 itself killing Meego in its infancy.
