Nokia N9 mobile phone arriving in the new colour of white and with a software update

Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia has made public that a new version of the joint Nokia-Intel MeeGo OS is being rolled out to their N9 handsets, along with a new colour of white being available to buy.

Nokia will be producing the white version of the N9 for the fourth quarter of this year in a 64GB storage capacity, within a glossy finish - instead of the matte style of their existing black, magenta and cyan range.

Frank Zillikens, who heads up the product marketing for Nokia N9, explained: ‘The manufacturing process for white products is quite complex and we wanted to make sure we deliver the best possible quality for our consumers.' - hence the delay.

The software update v1.1 is now being deployed to the N9 mobile phone, which brings with it new features and improvements.

These are in the realms of the standby screen showing items now such as charging, calendar and notifications; with music controls being added to the lock screen too.

There are also filters added to the camera, in black & white, sepia, vivid, negative and solarise; whilst instant NFC tag reading is now supported, with the Swype keyboard being available as part of the software.

Other updates include more powerful multitasking, with improved memory handling; faster mail for Exchange; noise cancellation, for reducing background noise in calls; Swiping down to close apps with multiple improvements to the operating system.
