Downloading Whatsapp on your Nokia Asha 201
The Nokia Asha 201, a phone produced through Microsoft, is equipped with a single core processor and RAM of 32 MB. Of course the Asha is more than just a processor, it also has a 2.4″ screen, a 2 Megapixel camera, and is the home of the Series 40 Asha operating system, not to mention a condensed QWERTY style keyboard to match it’s internal efficiency.
All of this is housed in a casing just smaller than the size of your hand. Now that we have a basic understanding of your phone, let’s talk about how to download Whatsapp.
Go to the internet browser (Nokia Browser) on your Nokia Asha 201 (This app should be represented by a blue button with an icon of a globe in the center).
Go to the URL (to clarify, make sure to enter this address into the browser on your Nokia, not your computer).
Follow the instructions provided to install Whatsapp on your Nokia Asha 201.
Alternatively you can choose to install Whatsapp without the use of the browser on your phone by following the steps below. (Note: Alternative installation path still requires the use of data or an internet connection.)
Click the “app” button on your device for a full list of apps. Once at your app page, go to your Nokia Store app, this should be a blue button with an icon of a white shopping bag/cart in the middle.
Search for “s40 Whatsapp messenger” once in the Nokia store app (The search bar once in the store is usually found at the bottom of the screen).
Once you’ve found Whatsapp, click on it, then click the install button on the screen that follows. Wait while your phone installs Whatsapp, and once complete your phone should notify you of a successful installation. (Note: Sometimes Whatsapp shows an error when first installed, a restart of your device usually fixes the issue.)
