Nokia SeaRay Windows Phone to ship with Nokia Maps Drive application and contacts importing feature

In case you missed it the first Nokia Windows Phone device named the Nokia SeaRay (or Nokia Sea Ray) has just been un-officially unveiled by Nokia yesterday.

First Nokia Windows Phone 7 handset spotted! Looks identical to the N9 codenamed Sea Ray

A few pictures apparently extracted from an amateur video showing Nokia’s Stephen Elop introducing the company’s first Windows Phone 7 handset are making the rounds this morning. As you can see the device looks identical to the recently announced Nokia N9 which runs Harmattan aka Maemo 6 (not Meego..) but it has a hardware camera button which is not present on the N9 (but is present in some of the official N9 video talking about the device’s prototyping and design). The device also has a different camera flash placement on the back.

The whole thing seems like a big fake at first (remember this) but there’s also a big chance that this could turn out to be true and could very well be the rumored Nokia W7. So grab some salt.More pictures after the break:

UPDATE: It’s real! Video of the device codenamed Sea Ray /SeaRay after the break (the video is obviously a internal video shot by Nokia themselves for its employees):
