Despite the N9 being Nokia’s first and last MeeGo phone, it looks like the company won’t be leaving it alone. Today, Nokia announced that it will be releasing a white variant of the N9, and for folks who already own an N9 phone – they will be getting a software update in the future as well. The software update includes usability improvements (i.e. music controls from the lock screen and closing apps by swiping them downwards) and the ability to read NFC tags.
No prices have been announced but the white Nokia N9 is said to arrive in Q4 2011, starting with the 64GB version. The software update for existing N9 phones will be available in Q4 2011 as well. N9 owners, keep those eyes peeled.
