Founders of WhatsApp Still Carry BlackBerrys “for Texting”

WhatsApp FAQ

Facebook went out of their minds last week with their $19 billion purchase of WhatsApp. That valuation came out of left field for most. Now we are hearing more about the founders of WhatsApp and their plans for the company. Lucas @N4BB noticed an interesting little tidbit in an article in the NYT about the founders.

They would make the app usable on a broad range of smartphones, from dated BlackBerrys, which they both still use for texting, to sleek new Android phones and iPhones, so that people rich and poor all over the globe could take advantage of the service.

My guess is they are still using “dated” BlackBerry 9900’s but hopefully BlackBerry can get them on the Q10 ASAP.
