Images of an upcoming Windows Phone powered Nokia handset have leaked onto the web.

The stills from a video first appeared on the Hungarian site TechNetBlog. It shows a Windows Phone handset code-named 'Sea Ray:'

This handset looks a lot like the recently unveiled Meego-powered Nokia N9.

Here's a video showing the handset, which Nokia CEO Stephen Elop called 'super-confidential' and said he didn't want to see it out in the blogosphere ... oooops.

Full, uncut video available here.

Here are a few more images:

What do you think? And who else has a sneaky suspicion that the video was perhaps 'leaked' deliberately to get us talking about Nokia and WP? That seems like a professionally shot video.

    Not the most stylish, looks like an N9 with WP7. Let's hope not.

    Final version will come in tons of colors to satisfy your need for a lime green phone. Can't wait to see it in more detail. This is what I want for Christmas.

    This was definitely not an "oops." This video is only missing a wink and a "tee hee!"

      Wait for it? The phone will also come in? <b>Brown</b>! After all brown is the new black ;) Now back to reality, the phone does not even look impressive, as it shares the same shape as the other 8 models currently on sale.

      • LOL!

        @Rick_K
        Not that your comment was funny, just boringly predictable!

        ROTFL! :)

      • Yeah Rick!! Yeah!!!

        Which 8 models? Is the iPhone one of the 8?

        This is a prototype. The casing will change. At the end of the day, how it looks is not nearly as important as how it feels. Nokia phones are the best feeling out there, along with Apple's.

        Disappointed to see the LED flash, though; I must say I was hoping for something a little more N8-y. If this is EDOF, I think I'll wait. The killer camera really is a killer app.

        Lol, are you implying only African Americans/Indians etc. will like this phone! Well it didn't work for Zune (zoon?) Nokia should have just offered to help sell iPhones and maybe some hybrid iOS dumb phone.

        I thicken you may have me confused with someone else. I currently have three Apple devices, and that is about as far as it goes. I choose tools based on my needs and if something better comes along, then I will re-evalutate the situation at that time. I am not impressed with what I saw (in person) as far as WP7SOS phones. Slapping WP7SOS on a generic phone (regardless of maker) does not impress me. Sure the Windows fanboys (about 80% of ZDNet subscribers) all go gaga over each Microsoft product, but in reality they are nothing special. The same thing can be said of specific products from each maker (including Apple).

      • @Rick_K: No, I don't have you confused with anyone else

        I love how you can be found on nearly every ZDNet blog spouting snarky remarks about the color of WP7 phones. Keep up the fantastic trolling! I'm right with you, I think exactly like you do, and I'm only making sure that people know exactly what you and I are doing here.

        But go ahead, prove me wrong, write something meaningful for once. :)

        @Rick_K INDEED! It's a freakin' rectangle! Where's my orb phone? or octagonal phone? Why can't I get a phone shaped like a donut? This corrupted corporations are FORCING rectangle phones down our throats!

        Rick did you take the time to go the Nokia site and look at the N9? 64GB storage, dual led camera flash, super 8 megapixel camera, and more. Sounds impressive to me. I will be dumping my iPhone when my contract is up.

      Ask not for whom the bell tolls, Android and Apple,

      It tolls for thee.

    Quality Nokia harware plus WP7 mango will be a cool super phone. Nokia's global reach and partnership with dealers and operators will help WP to finally get the critical momentum required for sucess.

      And Nokia?s number one product is a feature phone. Nokia?s name is synonymous with feature phones, not smartphones. When people think of smartphones they either think Android, or iPhone. Windows Mobile is a bottom feeder, and Nokia is right there with them.
      Rick_K
      • YEAH!! YEAH!!! BOTTOM FEEDER!!! YEAH!!!

        @Rick_K
        Thanks for proving me right above. :)

        @Rick_K - Maybe in the US Nokia's are usually cheaper phones, but internationally I think this is not the case - they sell quality stuff and lots of it. I have not used WP but I have used IOS and Android extensively. What I have seen of WP blows them out of the water - better UI, performance and functionality of the software.

        @Rick_K Windows Mobile? Did you mean WP7? Nokia does make some really decent devices - which is one reason why they are so good with feature phones. While I am not a WP7 fanboy by any stretch I would like to see what the finished product is before calling them a "bottom feeder".

        @woulddie4apple Dude you were amusing for the first couple of comments - now you are simply irritating. When are YOU going to post something relevant and meaningful like you keep calling out for Rick_K to do?

      I think the Nokia channel combined with their manufacturing efficiency may be the deciding factor, because all of those impact the consumer price of the product. If this thing comes to people at half the price of an iPhone, which is certainly possible, Apple is going to have a rough ride, and even Android will have to step up a gear.
