WhatsApp is mostly used in Smartphones. NOW, Learn how to use it with similar ease in your Tablet PCs. Be it Android, Blackberry, iPhone, Windows phone or Nokia phones; WhatsApp is supported in all. It uses the SIM carrier’s network or Wi-Fi (when available) to send/receive messages to your contacts, which exist in your device’s address book and also have WhatsApp installed in their individual devices. Once you install WhatsApp on your device, it automatically builds up a separate contact list (filtering out the contact numbers from the device), which are registered users of WhatsApp.
So if you ever thought that WhatsApp doesn’t run on a SIM-less Tablet PC? Then keep no doubts in your mind. With a simple method you can install it in your tabs, even if they lack SIM-slots.
