White Nokia Lumia 900 pictures and hands-on

Nokia has announced that it will be selling the Nokia Lumia 900 in the UK before the summer is out and we grabbed the white one at the company's Mobile World Congress booth to see what it looks like.

The new version is identical to the black, cyan and magenta versions of the Windows Phone 7 smartphone, albeit with a glossy rather than the matte shell launched at CES in January. 

That shiny white look means that it will show up smudges a lot easier, but will also still sparkle when it catches the light - something the black, even the Lumia 800 Batman edition, fails to do.

Like the cyan, magenta and black Lumia 900s that are already announced, the phone packs a 4.3-inch, WVGA 800x480 AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel camera boasting Carl Zeiss optics and a f2.2 aperture lens.

It is powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon processor with 512MB of RAM, and has 16GB of storage (and 25GB of SkyDrive storage). The white finish is a result of its smoothly crafted polycarbonate unibody.

Shiny.
