List of Phones that are Compatible with WhatsApp Messenger

Last modified on by Olusegun Fapohunda · Posted in Mobile

Sometimes ago, a friend of mine told me Nokia phones could ping BlackBerry, then I was confused that how could this be possible, moreover will I take my Nokia phone to RIM to install a hardware/software on my phone? Has RIM acquired Nokia or are they now partners? And many more questions run through my head. But the application I was told that is capable of pinging then was WhatsApp, I then proceeded to research the application, how it works and what is capable of doing. During my research I was able to conclude that WhatsApp couldn’t ping BlackBerry as I thought, but if WhatsApp application is installed on a BlackBerry then both users could chat and the application is an alternative to BlackBerry Messenger for those that doesn’t possess one.
