    WhatsApp Update For Windows Phone Arriving (Rumor)

    WhatsApp Update For Windows Phone Arriving (Rumor)WhatsApp, the app that was purchased by social networking giant Facebook not too long ago for a whopping $19 billion, is certainly worth having on your smartphone or tablet. In fact, the Windows Phone version of WhatsApp has seen a fair number of features having leaked out for the beta version, never mind that the official app itself has yet to be on the receiving end of such leaked features.

    Nokia Brags About Windows Phone Apps

    When it comes to poking fun at the competition, Nokia has never been one to shy away from doing just that. In fact they recently made fun of Samsung for their attempts at sponsoring the Oscars by providing Ellen Degeneres with a Galaxy smartphone, calling the photos taken blur.

In fact despite reports that Windows Phone is on the rise, it is still pretty far behind both Android and iOS, but it seems that won’t stop Nokia from bragging anyway. (more…)
