WhatsApp is a messaging app which initially allows messages to be sent between iPhone and Blackberries. Just recently they launched its public Beta for Nokia S60 handsets while Android users are being left out.
Suddenly, some folks at XDA Developers forum discovered a direct link of WhatsApp beta for Android.
You can download WhatsApp Beta for Android directly here.
Note: Some users reported having authorisation issues. Some suggested activating at different times of the day or after a couple of hours later. We tried to activate now but we still can’t get past “Provide your name” screen. Let’s see if we have better luck tomorrow morning.

Android Tablets are invading like a plague lately. First you got the Dell Streak that’s slightly bigger than a HD phone. Then you have the Samsung Galaxy Tab, half the size of an iPad. Now though, there’s something massive coming from Toshiba at 10.1″ big.
It is Toshiba’s rumoured SmartPad or better known as as the Folio 100 which was revealed further by Notebook Italia. It is powered by a new Nvidia Tegra 2 processor with 16GB storage. For connectivity, it has WiFI 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth, 3G, standard USB, USB mini audio jack and HDMI output. For added storage, there’s even a SD card reader that supports up to 32GB. For your multimedia needs, it comes with stereo speakers, a mic and a 1.3MP Web cam. On the OS version, we’re glad that it runs on Android 2.2 Froyo.
Although the screen is bigger than the iPad, the Folio 100’s 10.1″ screen supports a lower 1024×600 vs the iPad’s 1024×768 pixels. The bigger dimensions makes the Folio heavier at 760g which is 30g more than the iPad 3G’s 730g. Strangely, the battery for a tablet this big is a mere 1020mAh. Most Android phones today are powered with batteries of 1300mAh or more, so we are wondering how does the Folio cope up with such puny battery. At this point, all these are speculative specs from Notebook Italia with no pricing or launch details available.
So there you have it, Android Tablets or iPad killers at all sort of sizes to tickle your fancy.
The accessories for Samsung Galaxy Tab has been revealed ahead of its official debut on 2nd September thanks to OLED-Display. There will be an similar iPad looking leather cover which also folds as a stand, a desktop dock that charges with HDMI and audio output and a keyboard that docks the Galaxy Tab.
The full accessories pricing are as follows:
Leather Bag Casing: €41 (approx. RM165)
Table Charging Station with HDMI: €54 (approx. RM216)
Keyboard: €82 (approx RM328)
More details at OLED Display.
So we’ve seen the device, its usability and its accessories. Now its just the matter of when it will be launched here.
