Your query needs to be answered by the Developers and not by Nokia..

Re: Whatsapp on asha 501

As it was mentioned in the press release when the new Asha 501 was first introduced 
(http://press.nokia.com/2013/05/09/nokia-introduces-the-nokia-asha-501),
"WhatsApp and other key partners continue to explore new Asha". There's no further update on this right now, but we're working on it.

Re: Whatsapp on asha 501

Good thing I read this forum. No use buying this phone when whatsapp cannot be installed. Work on your apps, Nokia. Don't give us a link. Give us APPS, just like Google Play Store!

Re: Whatsapp on asha 501

Rumours have it WhatsApp is having difficulty makeing their app work on the 501, and of course it is Nokia's duty to help them sort out those difficulties. There's no point in one of the two companies blaming the other - the truth is that if either of the two comapnies really wants to have WhatsApp on 501, then it will become a reality. If Nokia really wants it, they can make WhatsApp do it.

I bought the 501 for my 10 y.o. daughter. It is a brilliant phone for the price tag, I am really excited. She has not yet explored the realm of texting, but I am sure she will sooner or later, and I do hope WhatsApp will be available by that time.

Although I must say that the Microsoft deal made me somewhat pessimistic. I'd expect MS to push Windows Phone into the Asha range, so their priority might be to make Windows Phone run on low cost Ashas rather than upgrading the Asha OS to support WhatsApp.

Therefore, a status update from a Nokia employee as to the current state of the WhatsApp on Asha 501 efforts would be much appreciated. Are you still working on this with the WhatsApp guys?

Re: Whatsapp on asha 501

This is not because of the Nokia_msft deal. No matter if I'm not happy with this deal, Microsoft in no interest will hope for the decrease in the sales of Asha phones as that will be a good source of revenue.
Plus till Shareholders don't approve this deal, all the work is done by Nokia alone. Coming to the WhatsApp part, I think Nokia World on Oct 22 will provide you the answer. Wait for it :smileyhappy:
