During our exclusive interview with Talmon Marco, the CEO informed us firsthand that the Viber VoIP app would “likely” be coming “hand in hand” with the upcoming BlackBerry 10.2 OS. The exact question and answer are reposted below:
Now that you’ve expanded to PC with Viber, are there any other areas that you’re looking at expanding? Game systems such as the Nintendo 3DS, etc.?
We’re always looking at more platforms. At the same time, Viber is a small company, so adding these is not easy. Viber will soon be available for BB10 (likely hand in hand with the release of BB 10.2). And yeah, you heard about it first!
This should alleviate BlackBerry fans, who have been clamoring for their own version of the app as the world’s fourth mobile OS looks to gain traction with developers and gain more new applications for its BlackBerry World store.
What do you think? Are you ready to Viber on your BlackBerry 10 device?
