BlackBerry Z10 gets Whatsapp right on cue

BlackBerry Z10 gets Whatsapp right on cueJan called it the other day already, but just to confirm: Whatsapp has now officially arrived for BlackBerry 10 and the BlackBerry Z10.

Just as well too, as it means BB social media manager Alex Kinsella doesn't look like an idiot for Tweeting “prediction for next week – You'll be downloading WhatsApp on your BlackBerry Z10”.

If you don't know what Whatsapp is, well you're probably not reading this, so let's just say it's a free cross-platform messaging app and be done with it.

You get instant push notifications of new messages – even when the screen is locked – and the Whatsapp app supports automatic contact scanning via BlackBerry Contacts.

Get it right now from BlackBerry World.

Seems there are some problems... => http://forums.crackberry.com/blackberry-10-apps-f274/i-cant-install-whatsapp-z10-781627/

Have you uninstalled the side-loaded Android version and rebooted? Have you got the latest Z10 firmware updates?
If you get ‘Error Installing application’ while downloading WhatsApp for Z10, Well, you’re not the only one. Some users around the globe complaining that they can’t install WhatsApp on their Z10 devices. However, I have no issue installed it this morning.

We’re sure that WhatsApp already have the news and working around the clock to fix it. Meantime, you may want to try restart your device ;

1. Press power button for 5 seconds

2. A screen countdown will appear

3. Press restart below

4. Try download again from BlackBerry World

I posted the link 2 posts above yours => http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/2360/

I can clearly see whatsapp in the appworld. And if you hit the supported device tab on that page, you'll find the Z10 is listed. But there is a problem: You need the latest Firmware as
described here => http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/btsc/viewdocument.do;jsessionid=4DF5010E6EDF7956F76E68F6E88C9B5B?noCount=true&externalId=KB33937&sliceId=2&cmd=displayKCPopup&docType=kc&isLoadPublishedVer=&docTypeID=DT_SUPPORTISSUE_1_1&ispopup=true&ViewedDocsListHelper=com.kanisa.apps.common.BaseViewedDocsListHelperImpl

You must also deleted the Android-port version first, and then reboot before you try to install the BB version of whatsapp.
