Nokia 8110 Welcomes WhatsApp to the Store

HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announced that WhatsApp, the simple, reliable and secure messaging app, is now available on the Nokia 8110. The app can be downloaded from the Store.

The General manager, West, East and Central Africa at HMD Global, Joseph Umunakwe said:

“Millions of people stay in touch with their loved ones through messaging apps like WhatsApp, and we wanted to bring this to fans of our retro classic, the Nokia 8110. Now, you can keep up to date on your family and friends’ groups, share messages and never miss a moment, all with the style and cool-factor of a true Nokia classic.”

With a familiar and easy to use interface, the Nokia 8110 features intuitive tactile mechanics such as sliding the cover open to pick up calls and sliding it back to end them, as well as a design that allows for an addictive helicopter-style spin on its axis. It comes with the craftsmanship you would expect from a Nokia phone, delivering durability and reliability as standard.

 

Powered by KaiOS, the leading mobile operating system for smart feature phones, and the only lite OS with an app store, Nokia 8110 delivers crystal-clear VoLTE calling and is perfect for anyone who wants an iconic 4G feature phone or a companion device. It also comes equipped with the Store, a home to KaiOS-powered apps, rich content, and services that enhance user experience. This includes a suite of preloaded Google applications such as the Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Search as well as popular apps like Facebook.

“We’re delighted that WhatsApp is now available on the widely popular 8110, enabling users to easily communicate with friends and family, both near and far,” said Sebastien Codeville, founder and CEO of KaiOS Technologies. “Our mission is to provide affordable digital services to everyone, and this announcement marks a big milestone towards our goal.”

With two vibrant colors to choose from, Traditional Black and Banana Yellow, the Nokia 8110 has everything you loved reloaded, including a revamped Snake game.

    They’re beginning to overdo the nostalgia thing.
