How You Can Install WhatsApp On Your Nokia N8 Device

With so many people using the WhatsApp instant messaging service, it’s no wonder it became so popular. Many people using it on their devices were shocked to learn that the company would stop supporting the app for Nokia and Blackberry devices along with any Android device running 2.2 or older software.

The truth is, that’s not a real surprise. After all, the devices are old and so is the OS versions.

It appears, in the meantime, that the Nokia N8 is still using WhatsApp. If you go the supported device list for WhatsApp, you’ll see that Nokia N8 is listed under the Symbian OS section. Not that big of a surprise, as the N8 was the first device to use Symbian OS. While it’s not a total prize, it’s better than what you see with Windows Mobile.
