I thought Nokia is going to play it like Apple when it comes to their first WindowsPhone. Keep it secret till the end. Well, they still need to learn a lot about that. For instance it does not make sense to show an product that you want to keep a secret as CEO in front of a big group of people (see video below). It does not help to tell the audience to put away their cameras unless they are threaten by sudden death.
Either way, Nokia's Stephen Elop showed off the first Nokia Windows Phone and the images and videos leaked on the web. The Nokia Windows Phone codename Sea Ray looks like the just unveiled Nokia N9. This is actually a good thing. Sea Ray shares the same specifications like Gorilla Glass, 8MPcamera and apparently fast CPU. The Nokia Windows Phone clearly has what it takes to compete with other Windows Phones from HTC or others. What remains to be seen is if Nokia can help to push Windows Phone forward to catch up with Android and Apple iOS.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
