HMD Global brings WhatsApp to Nokia 8110 4G

Wednesday 8 May 2019 | 15:03 CET | News
HMD Global has added WhatsApp to its KaiOS Store, for use with the Nokia 8110 4G phone. The app joins Twitter, which was the only social media on the store for the feature phone. When HMD Global launched the Nokia 8110 4G with KaiOS in 2018, the affordable device was mentioned as an alternative to expensive smartphones at festivals, where many devices can get lost or stolen. HMD Global promised that the KaiOS application store would contain the most essential (social media) apps.

Nokia 8110 4G was announced last February with tales of WhatsApp-friendly. I bought it last July 10th. I successfully installed WhatsApp in Malaysia this May 6th. It functions well and in a country where WhatsApp is a must-have app, it was worth the wait.
