WPCentral is reporting that Nokia’s first phone running Windows Phone 7, codenamed “Sea Ray,” has shown up on a mobile speed test.
It apparently showed up on DSL Reports, the mobile speed testing site for broadband devices, “coming in at 1211kbps which isn’t too shabby,” according to WPCentral, which adds the caveat that “what gives the device away of course is the user agent…though (that’s) not impossible to spoof either.”
There’s been speculation about the launch date – most recently pegged to October – for the Nokia phone, which would run the Windows Phone operating system update, codenamed “Mango.”
The Windows Phone development team signed off on the release to manufacturing (RTM) of Mango on July 26, meaning the software is ready for phone makers to install on new phones being built.
This presumably includes Nokia, which in April announced a deal with Microsoft that would make Windows Phone 7 the primary operating system for Nokia’s smartphones.
