WhatsApp coming within the next 24 hours, will require Mango

Plaffo reports one of their users asked to join the WhatsApp private beta and received the following response:

Thanks for your message and interest. We Should Be releasing a public version to the next 24 hours Within The Marketplace, I know I do not think there is much point in sending you a link to the closed beta group.

WhatApp is the long-awaited very popular messaging client which leaked recently and is already being used by a  number of homebrew enthusiasts with unlocked handsets.  Looks like we will be joining the fun ourselves soon.

Update: Reader Mike asked about support for NoDo handsets and received the following answer:

WhatsApp Support:


Thanks for your message.  Yes, the WhatsApp version for Windows will require Mango.

Of course in a month’s time this will not be a problem at all.

Thanks Mike for the tip.
