Whatsapp for T-Mobile Beat

WhatsApp Messenger App for the T-Mobile Beat

The Beat, also know as the Orange Hollywood, is a mobile phone offered by T-Mobile. It is an entry-level and affordable 3G smart phone for those buyers working from a budget.

It is classified as a business phone. From an aesthetical standpoint, the T-Mobile Beat does not host the modern design of the Apple iPhone, but rather has the appearance of a older Blackberry-clone. A slim handset, the Beat comes with a full QWERTY keyboard. It offers a 2.4-inch screen with standard 320 x 240 resolution.

The display is touchscreen resistive, which is the most common form of touchscreen and is made out of two thin layers separated by a thin gap; this means the screen requires the mechanical pressure made by a finger or stylus to operate.

The Beat is both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi compatible. Other features include a 3.2-megapixel camera without flash, a microSD card slot, built-in audio jack, and a built-in FM Radio. Additional technical specifications can be found on BusinessMobile.com.

T-Mobile Beat smartphone works off of a proprietary operating system, or OS, called Navigation. Navigation is a Java-based platform that has been adapted or customized by T-Mobile. Because of its proprietary OS and Java platform, the T-Mobile Beat is a relatively basic smartphone.

An icon system is available, which works much like the Blackberry OS. This makes the user heavily reliant on the touchpad. Both social networking applications Facebook and Twitter are fully integrated for use with the OS. However, the Beat cannot take advantage of additional applications available through the App Store.

WhatsApp Messenger is an increasingly popular messaging application that allows for the exchange of SMS messages at no cost to the user. This popular application is unfortunately not available for download from the T-Mobile Beat.

This is due to the fact that no version is currently available that supports both a proprietary OS and Java platform. As of this writing, the WhatsApp Messenger application is supported for use only with the following platforms: iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows and Symbian phones. Support for several of these mentioned platforms are expected to be ceased by WhatsApp Messenger before the end of 2016. As such, application support for the T-Mobile Beat does not look encouraging.
