Viber has finally made it to the Blackberry. However, it’s still in the beta stages, which means it is limited to older versions of Blackberry OS and not compatible with the latest BB10 platform. The current version can only be downloaded on Blackberry 5 and 7 devices, and if everything works out fine, the final version could be with us as early as next week. The reason why Blackberry 6 was left out is that some inherent limitations of the OS will prevent Viber from being operational.
“BlackBerry is one of the most important markets for us and represents our third largest user base,” said Talmon Marco, CEO at Viber. “We are thrilled to bring this community free voice calling, letting them communicate freely with all of their important contacts across multiple platforms.”
Viber can be considered as a competitor to Skype and WhatsApp, which makes us wonder why it hasn’t had a presence on the BB10 platform until now.
