Nokia Corp. has finally showcased its first smartphone based on Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Phone 7 operating system. The phone looks like the recently announced MeeGo-based N9, but has a number of peculiarities.

Nothing particular is known about the first Nokia WP7-based device. But here is what we know: the code-named Sea Ray product looks like the N9, hence, it sports the same design and 854*480 resolution screen (something not confirmed, but something that is logical given the fact that WP does not seem to require high resolution). It is unknown what is inside and whether it sports ARM Cortex-A8-based Texas Instruments OMAP3630 or something from Qualcomm. There are differences: the LED flash is placed different on the backside of the product.

Based on the “screenshots” that were made public by Technet.hu web-site, the home screen of Nokia WP7 first-gen phone includes phone, messaging, e-mail, browser, Xbox live and two other features. This indicates clearly that Nokia did not customize its first WP smartphone to differentiate itself from other manufacturers.

It is noteworthy that the device shown by Stephen Elop, the chief executive officer of Nokia, was similar to Nokia N9, the current flagship of the company. Earlier rumours indicated that the company used Nokia X7 platform for development of its first Windows Phone-based device.
