    That's not the Nokia exclusive Whatsapp. That's just routine normal one which is gone as well for WP8.

    How bad does it work? Is it even usable? How fast does it reopen when you get a message? Does it receive notifications on time?

    It's OK. It's not as good as it's on Symbian. It is irregular like Android in notifications but that is due to Whatsapp server side issues. It has a resume screen which doesn't exist on any platform. It is surely usable. But if you use it VERY often, then that resume screen that screw your head real quick.

    According to a member over here the whatsapp team told him over email that it would roll out in about a month, which leaves about 3 weeks from now.

    Well the lack of whatsapp has been holding me off from getting a 920 too. But then I realized that I could use SMS for local contacts. Whatsapp does NOT have read receipts and the delivered receipts are only useful because the server is wonky and messages can take some time reaching their destination sometimes. On the other hand with SMS you know that the service is solid so don't really need delivery receipts.

    It was available for a couple of days last week. I installed it but had to get rid of it because it killed the battery at an alarming rate

    I have been using whatsapp on my Lumia 920 for about three weeks now. I am happy with it. Works the same as it did on my iPhone 4S. I don't see any issues. I really had to dig the app out though. It is hidden. I went to whatsapp website and then sent myself a link to the windows phone version of the app.

    I'm thinking of converting my friends on it to Kik. I'm tired of the "on again, off again" situation with WhatsApp.

    Yeah whatsapp seems unreliable on my blackberry too. Kik is far cleaner and has read receipts too unlike whatsapp.
