Good news Blackberry 10 users! If you’ve been looking for a way to communicate with your non-Blackberry using friends, WhatsApp is probably an app you’ve been looking forward to. The good news is that according to Alex Kinsella on the Blackberry dev relations team, he tweeted that he predicts that WhatsApp will be arriving for Blackberry 10 next week. Considering that he is part of the dev relations team, we can’t help but feel this is less of a prediction but more like a hint of what’s to come. Either way we will be keeping our eyes peeled, so check back with us then for the details!
WhatsApp was originally not planned for Blackberry 10, much to the dismay of many Blackberry 10 hopefuls. However last month, a member of the WhatsApp team confirmed that the app would be arriving on the Blackberry 10, and that a March release was to be expected. Based on the latest tweet by Kinsella, it looks like they’ve managed to meet their deadline in the end.
