White is the new black. \u00a0White versions of two phones are coming out soon \u2013 a white Samsung Galaxy Nexus and a white Nokia Lumia 800. \u00a0Samsung and Nokia made their respective announcements with respect to the availability of white versions of their popular handsets. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been featured in this blog on several posts and in fact, I did a hands-on review on the handset which you can find here. \u00a0The Galaxy Nexus features a 4-65-inch display,\u00a01.2GHz dual-core processor, 5 megapixel camera, and of course Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Personally, I think the white version\u00a0of the Galaxy Nexus is not as good as the metallic gray version.\u00a0 The color doesn\u2019t go well with the phone\u2019s design.\u00a0 The all-black front display simply doesn\u2019t mesh well with white.\u00a0 But this is just a personal opinion of course.\u00a0 Here\u2019s a photo of the white Galaxy Nexus which will be available only in the UK for now. Nokia\u2019s white Lumia 800, on the other hand, looks really good.\u00a0 The color enhances the handset\u2019s hardware design and the effect is to give it an ultra premium look. \u00a0It is has the same features as the original Nokia Lumia 800.\u00a0 The specs include a 3.7-inch AMOLED ClearBlack curved display a 1.4 GHz processor, an 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, HD video playback and 16GB of internal user memory.\u00a0 It runs on Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. The white Nokia Lumia will be available this month and will start rolling out in Finland, Russia, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and Poland. It will be available in other markets starting March.\u00a0 There\u2019s no word if this will be released in the Philippines.
