Nokia N9 sees 1.1 update and new color

Nokia gave the N9 a treat at Nokia World with a jump in software as well as a new color. The MeeGo phone's 1.1 update will give it several new features, including the ability to read NFC tags. It also catches up to the iPhone by adding music controls at the lock screen and improves the buttonless UI by letting users swipe apps down to close them.

The hardware itself is now getting a special white color that won't even be available with the Lumia 800, its Windows Phone cousin. Its design will otherwise be similar to the black, cyan, and fuchsia versions.

Both the software and the white N9 will be available before the end of the year. Nokia expects the 64GB N9 to be available in white first, but the 16GB N9 should get white later on.
