Stephen Elop himself spilled the beans about Nokia’s first WP7 handset, codenamed Sea Ray, when he told a large live audience and some whirring video cameras that he wanted the phone to be kept “super confidential.” Now we have a whole new puddle of legumes lying on what sounds like a Chinese factory floor, courtesy of the authentic-looking video above. The clip reveals the N9-like device removed from what appears to be a stealth case, followed by a speedy boot-up into the Windows Phone OS. We’re also treated to a quick look at the camera in action — triggered by a [...]

Meanwhile, a second tracker, WP7Applications, reckons it’s more like 24,878 in total, but let’s face it; it all amounts to the same thing – that the Windows Phone app market is going great guns.

The first Nokia Windows Phone has been revealed by Stephen Elop, CEO of Nokia, and it looks very familiar.
Codenamed Sea Ray, the phone is pretty much identical to the recently announced Nokia N9 and we will be the first to admit that its showing in a video is very brief.
This is because the video of the phone was filmed covertly at an event where Elop asked for all imaging equipment to be turned off.
“This is something that is super confidential,” explained Elop in the briefing and picked up by WinRumors.
“We do not want to see it out in the blogosphere [...]

Of course, Microsoft didn’t forget its roots, either. There’s email and Exchange support, and it’s the only mobile OS with official Microsoft [...]
