Hey Asha 501 here’s quick heads up for you. Nokia will be rolling out a new update for Asha 501 this week. This update will bring the support for WhatsApp on your phones. It’s an OTA (Over-The-Air) update. But since Asha 501 doesn’t have 3G, you would like to perform it on the Wi-Fi. After the update you can download WhatsApp for free from the Nokia Store.
Asha 501 was the first in series to use Nokia’s new Asha platform which is based around Swipe UI. It’s been doing good but it was lacking WhatsApp which is a major hit with youths. The other phones in the series such 500,502 and 503 will come with the WhatsApp pre-installed.
