The Lumia family is growing in number today, courtesy of Nokia's announcement that a glossy white variant of the Lumia 800 will be released later this month. Apart from its brighter case and glossy finish, this is the same handset that's been available in cyan, magenta and black already. That means a 3.7-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz single-core processor, and Windows Phone 7.5 enhanced with a number of preloaded Nokia apps. We've also spotted a new Ministy of Sound application for the UK, which should be coming to all Lumia handsets in that market. Nokia reminds us that app selection will differ with regions.

Besides the UK, Nokia's home nation of Finland will also be among the first to receive stock of the white Lumia 800, along with Russia, Italy, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Poland. Other markets in which the Lumia 800 is already out will follow on from March onwards.
