WhatsApp just got updated across all Nokia fronts…
On Lumia devices, WhatsApp got updated to v2.0, with this new update comes the bility to now add a profile pic, I also noticed the app now starts up faster than before, which is a good thing especially since Windows Phone’s idea of multi-tasking is deeply flawed (will be corrected in WP8), then there are other minor bugs fixes (under the hood improvements). get whatsapp 2.0 for Lumia.
On Symbian devices, WhatsApp got updated to v2.6.91, this updates is mainly brings minor bug fixes and improvements, nothing to see here! get whatsapp 2.6.91for symbian
For the MeeGo running N9, the unofficial WhatsApp client Wazapp, in less than a week from release gets a quick update to v0.2 and it brings a whole lot of goodies…
