Video shows first Nokia Windows Phone, code-named Sea Ray

The first Windows Phone from Nokia is code-named Sea Ray, comes with an 8-megapixel camera and uses the Mango version of Microsoft's OS,according to a video sent to Hungarian Web site Technet.hu.

The video, which seems to come from an internal meeting, starts with Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop saying that the industrial design of the MeeGo-based N9, which was announced earlier this week, will live on, and he asks the audience to put away their cameras and turn off all recording devices because what he is about to show is "super-confidential." He then takes out the Mango-based Sea Ray, a functional Windows device that has a screen protected by Gorilla glass, a pillow-shaped back, and an 8-megapixel camera, according to Elop.

A Nokia employee then takes the stage and demonstrates the OS, including the People hub and Xbox-integration. When the phone ships, which is expected to happen before the end of the year, it will come with Nokia's own applications, including Maps and one that will help owners of its old phones transfer contacts.

Sea Ray isn't the only Windows Phone Nokia is developing, Elop noted.

Nokia currently has three priorities: sustaining its business, getting through the current transition incorporating Windows in its mobile devices and getting products out, according to Elop, who said he wants to see consumers "drool" over its devices.

The video was sent to Technet.hu via an e-mail from an address that didn't identify the sender, but when asked, Nokia said it was alright to leave online, according to Technet editor Hamar Balázs.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
