Hi, I am very interested in the Mudita Pure! especially the low SAR is what I am searching for. But, for my job (self-employed tree worker) I need a lot of functions on the road. I could use a tablet, and connect to internet via the Pure, so I can do everything I need to like taking pictures and sending mails, but have this device in the truck in stead of my pocket…
The only think I can’t find a solution of is whatsapp. It is the main conversation tool. groups with co-workers etc. So I also need it. As far as I understood I need a smartphone with my phone number in order to have whatsapp working on other devices as well… I could also just have a smartphone in the truck, but I can’t get 2 cards with the same phone number for a smartphone + Pure.
Are there people in the same situation? and how did you solve this?
On whatsapps website you could download the whatsapp apk installation file, without having to use google playstore. Then you could install it on any android tablet, using android 5 or above. I have used this on a Onyx Boox e-book reader and it worked well, except that everything was in b&w.
WhatsApp have recently updated the app though, so I don’t know if this works anymore.
Second idea is to use a chromebook that can install android apps (compability list at google).
Third possibility is to use a laptop with Linux and install anbox (android emulator) and try to run WhatsApp from there.
Fourth option is a feature phone with KaiOS.
Fifth is not here yet for the public, but Microsoft is working on making Win11 android compatible.
