DANGER! Nokia promoting Unofficial Wazapp in stores (spells Name wrong)

Ok, this is a bit awkward; according to the following tweet the Nokia Store in UAE is using Wazapp (spelled wrong in the ad) to promote sales of the N9; claiming
"the wait is over go to"
@EverythingN9 @tgalal this was at nokia store, in Bahrain. Glad to see wazapp being used to sell #N9
I have no problem with Nokia trying to push the N9 sales; however promoting an unofficial client that's not even available in the marketplace seems a bit "weird"; first off I doubt the whatsapp people are happy about their services being reverse coded to get access to the servers and what not, second Nokia has a VERY tight relationship with Whatsapp; first constantly promoting whatsapp over BBM with the "Drop the Pink Campaign"
Then preloading whatsapp on all S40 devices giving them cross platform chat out of the box, Personally I don't know the extent of their relation nor do I know if there have been other moves to promote Wazapp through official Nokia channels but I think this is some murky water to be treading in.
