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!
