WhatsApp finally comes to Windows Phone, fans rejoice

Update: It’s finally on the marketplace and available to download right now! So go wild! Be sure to read Techin5’s interview with the CEO of WhatsApp here.

Windows Phone users rejoice! WhatsApp, the most requested App people have been asking for in the Windows Phone Marketplace has finally hit the market! That’s the good news as you can see in the screenshot below.

The unfortunate news is that it currently doesn’t want to install on our phones (omnia 7 or HTC Trophy), which is weird since there shouldn’t be a reason that it won’t install, as we’re getting error ‘C00D11CD’ (the issue must be caused by WhatsApp just distributing the App across the Marketplace). However the great news is that it’s finally in the marketplace meaning it should (in theory) start installing any time now. If anyone else get’s it to work, please let us know! You can try your luck here – WhatsApp Zune.

Let’s hope we can talk to our iPhone and Android counterparts very very soon! And btw, we still like our logo which we made with their other picture for WP7.

    That error normally means region restricted release.  Cannot find it on the phone manrketplace, just via the deep link that bypasses region blocks…

    So US only I’m guessing.

    I’m using a US account on my phone but in Israel… getting the same error
    I used my US account for all the other apps I got and never got this kind of error. I guess all I can do is wait :)

    Nope no one’s getting it yet, US, Aus, UK as far as I know. So it means it’s still being distributed.

    I’ve installed Whatsapp in my HTC Trpohy after updating the software to Mango.
    When the Mango is installed, for some weird reason, the date is changed to 1980. Please change the date to current date and then dowloand whatsapp from Marketplace. It should work.
