Nokia is introducing a white version of its Meego-equipped N9 smartphone. Yes, we know it’s not available in the UK, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t fallen for it in a big way….
Frank Zillikens from Nokia comments: “The manufacturing process for beautiful white products is quite complex and we wanted to make sure we deliver the best possible quality for our consumers.”
White phones seem to be in vogue at the moment, with the Samsung Galaxy S2, Apple iPhone 4S and Blackberry Bold 9900 all available in the pale shade, we’ve even seen Motorola get in on the act with glimpses of a white Razr.
We’ve loved the Nokia N9 from since we first had some hands-on time with it earlier this year. The hardware is stunning, with the curve, polycarbonate design and its Meego operating system, with three homescreens. Unfortunately it’s available throughout most of Europe with the exception of the UK.
Existing owners of the Nokia N9 users will also be getting a software update in Q4,which adds music controls from the lock screen, the ability to close apps by swiping down and NFC tag reading.
One question we need to ask. The Nokia N9 shares the same chassis as the Windows Mobile touting Nokia Lumia 800. So does this mean we’ll be seeing our favourite Windows Phone handset in white now?
