Alternative For Blackberry And Windows As WhatsApp will Not Be Available for them

Few days ago, WhatsApp made an announcement that it will terminate support for blackberry, Windows and symbian phones and blackberry users went nuts because of this.

WhatsApp states that it will no less support blackberry phones, Android 2.1 and 2.2, Nokia s40 and symbian phones, Windows phone 7.1. But when you look at it you will see that it will affect blackberry users mostly as people no longer use Nokia symbian, Android 2.1 and 2.2 have fazed out since 3yrs ago and also windows mobile 7. 1.

So blackberry is the loser here and now WhatsApp is undoubtedly the most used and best instant messaging application in the world now as BBM lost out few years back. But that shouldn't be the problem of blackberry users as their BBM is still being used by some and there is telegram too which supports both blackberry and windows phone.

Blackberry BBM no longer required a pin to connect with your friends or loved ones as it uses your phone contact just like WhatsApp and telegram. If you love and prefer blackberry over Android, this shouldn't make you to go and purchase Android or iPhone but rather go for other instant messaging apps like telegram which is a great application and works similar like WhatsApp same goes to Windows mobile 7.1.

But you know that BB10 phone can run Android apps so for BB10 phone what to do is to install WhatsApp for Android on your device.

Report has it that the major reason why WhatsApp did this was because of Android, as they have up to 1.4 Billion Active Android users.

Do you think WhatsApp purposely did this to create more down fall for blackberry OS, please guys let's have your say or opinion about this movement by WhatsApp.
