Nokia Sea Ray out for testing, shows up on mobile speed test

It's been a few weeks since we heard anything about the Nokia 'Sea Ray' aka Nokia's first foray into Windows Phone. Evidently, the phone has showed up on DSL Reports, the mobile speed testing site for broadband devices, coming in at 1211kbps which isn't too shabby.

What gives the device away of course is the user agent, here reported as Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows Phone OS 7.5; Trident/5.0; IEMobile/9.0; Nokia; SeaRay). That's a pretty good give away, though not impossible to spoof either.

Still, we've heard from our own sources that engineering prototypes have been sent out to their respective testing facilities, which possibly explains it popping up here. We've also heard some things about a 3.7" screen, a Micro SIM card and a code name of "Sabre", for what it's worth. Perhaps that latter name, if true, is a carrier name for the Sea Ray.

At least we're getting closer!

As much as I like the Sea Ray this handset is not enough to Stand out at a launch for nokia. everyone and there dog has seen it. But it really has lost the wow factor which Nokia are going to have do. Who knows maybe Nokia will surprise us and this is a diversion.

hope you're right :Dwaiting endlessly for the nokia wp7 devices...

Arggghh hurry up Nokia!

Yep, getting closer. I will be getting a Nokia, but not the SeaRay/Sabre - while nice looking, it's just disappointing that Nokia is reusing the N9 shell; but somewhat understandable given their time constraints. But 2012 will be the year of Nokia.Really hope that the 3.7" buzz you're hearing is wrong! Yeah, I know, that's only .2 inches shy of the N9's 3.9" screen, but it just seems silly to shave that off of the WP device. But if true, hopefully they won't offer some lame excuse like 'well, the SeaRay has a camera button, and the N9 doesn't'! Rant over! Just tired of oem's giving WP the short end of the stick!

Typically takes 18months to 2 years to design a new phone from scratch, Nokia have the Sea Ray ready in half of that time, it wouldnt have been possible if they didnt use a similar shell. N9 wont be widespread so wont really be a problem.

@garymoncrieff yes I have no doubt that you are right about the development of a. New handset problem is Is throwing all their eggs into WP7 so they have to come to market with something that is going to grab the public attention. We have ios 5 coming soon and Android ice cream. Micrososft need to have some handsets that are going to grab the public if anyone can do it its got to be Nokia I don't think remaking the N9 is really going to do it.

There has been alot of hype around the N9, but it will end up another N900. If Nokia had have shown of the sea ray first there wouldnt be an issue.The N9 will be limited by markets and I suspect supply, most of the countries getting the first Nokia WP, wont even see the N9 launched there. So the majority will not know.

Again, AT&T is the big Windows Phone 7 supporter, so I am sure they will have Nokia phones long before Verizon even shows a rumor of one....
