Nokia Windows Phone 7 handset leaks ahead of launch

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has been caught on film brandishing the company's first Windows Phone 7 device

Nokia’s first Windows Phone 7 handset has leaked online with images and video of the eagerly awaited device hitting the web following a confidential internal company reveal by CEO Stephen Elop.

Heading for a UK launch around October alongside Microsoft’s Mango Windows Phone 7 operating system update, the first Nokia WP7 device looks very similar to the MeeGo powered Nokia N9 device that was officially unveiled earlier in the week with the Microsoft mobile OS at its core.

Hitting the web courtesy of Dutch website technnet, the much mooted Nokia Windows Phone 7 collaboration handset is seen in a leaked video that shows Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop presenting the handset to his employees.

“This is something that is super confidential and we do not want to see out in the blogesphere,” announces Elop in the outed video available below. He adds to the gathered Nokia staff: “We think it is important for all of you to understand how this innovation lives on and how well we as a company are today executing it.”

Sporting a remarkably similar form factor to the Nokia N9, the yet unnamed Windows Phone 7 device boasts, according to Elop’s commentary, “gorilla glass” and a “pillowed shaped back.”

Speaking directly with T3 a Nokia spokesperson said on the leak: "It’s our policy not to comment on rumours or market speculation – but we can tell you that we’re excited about with the progress we’re making on Nokia with Windows Phone and look forward to the day that we can share it with the world."

Will Windows Phone 7 be Nokia’s saviour or a minor delay to its slippery slope? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
