LONDON, United Kingdom – Nokia is happy to announce a new addition to the Nokia N9 family with the arrival of the white version of the highly acclaimed device. Current Nokia N9 users will also be pleased to hear that they will soon be getting a software update for their phone.
White devices are all the rave at the moment. So why was the Nokia N9 not available in white from the start? Frank Zillikens, who heads up the product marketing for Nokia N9, explains: “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.”
The white Nokia N9 sports a glossy finish, so it looks slightly different from its matte sisters in black, magenta and cyan. It will be available during the fourth quarter of 2011, starting with the 64GB version.
The other Nokia N9 news today is the software update, which people will be able to download during the fourth quarter of 2011. The update includes usability improvements, like music controls keys from the lock screen or closing apps by swiping them down by default and NFC tag reading is also added.
