Nokia N9 Springs Up In Glossy White, Gets A Software Update

With all the Windows Phone devices Nokia announced today, the Espoo company also revealed a recent color for the N9. The MeeGo-running smartphone that got many excited, will now be available in white, alongside its black, magenta and blue siblings.

Unlike them, however, the white N9 will come with a glossy finish rather than the matte finishes of the other N9 models. We're glad the white finish didn't took Nokia years (*cough* Apple *cough*) to develop becautilize it looks stunning. Here's Frank Zilikens, head of product marketing, explaining why the N9 wasn't available in white correct off the bat:

“The manufacturing process for lovely white products is quite complex and we wanted to create sure we deliver the best possible quality for our consumers."

The Verge managed to acquire their hands on one of the white N9's lying around. Here's how it looks like in person.

Along the white colored N9, Nokia also announced a software update coming for the device. It will bring usability improvements such as:

  • Closing apps by swiping them down will be enabled by default
  • Controlling music from the lock screen, as well as NFC tag reading

Both the update and the glossy white version of the N9 will become available sometime in Q4 2011. We can't wait.
