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.

The Nokia Sea Ray features a Gorilla Glass screen and a 8Mp camera with Carl Zeiss Optics and I guess an Qualcomm MSM8255 SoC. According to the whole presentation (after the break) the device will ship with pre-installed Nokia application like Nokia Maps Drive Navigation which I guess will be an application similar to this (a stop gap solution before Ovi Maps gets integrated into Bing Maps later) and the ability to import contact from all Nokia handsets to Windows Phone 7. Stephen Elop also announced that the company already has other Windows Phone 7 device up and running (with different designs):

    I really wonder how quickly Nokia can intergrate it’s tech/ip into Microsoft’s, such as Bing maps.

    Obviously the faster the better, but my understanding is these things are planned out years in advance, and can take as long to execute, especially across the entire platform. Earliest guess for me in an update in early 2012 – spring 2012, with later coming in Windows Phone 8. If they have it ready by Mango’s release I’ll be incredibly surprised as well as happy as can be, but I just see that being very unrealistic. We shall see.

    As for other unrealistic events, if Nokia or Samsung release a dual core 4G Windows Phone with AMOLED (hopefully super amoled plus), I will buy it. I don’t care if I have to break my contract earlier or cut off me left foot, it will be mine. :D

    Looks like Ballmer and Elop got angry that Meego was stealing all the buzz so he ‘leaked’ the N9 with WP7 running on it. One problem though, Meego looks way better, WP7 is boring. I want to know more about Meego I don’t really care about WP7 or I would have bought one already

    LOL! Meego has no buzz. Not only does it have no developer support, at all, but that is the only Meego phone Nokia will release. Stephen Elop announced it in Sweden. Meego is going nowhere.

    As for the SOC this phone is using, I don’t know how the author knows that considering Elop didn’t announce any specs for this phone except the camera. But if you look closely, this phone is also rumored to have a front facing camera in the bottom right corner, just like the N9.

    It’s farily easy to guess which SoC is powering the Sea Ray because there’s only two possibilities: the MSM8255 or MSM7230. And given that is should be flagship product then it’s most proably the MSM8255.
