Viber: “coming soon” to BB10….AGAIN

Viber-logoI’m sure a lot of you remember this thread:

2 years ago Viber announced that they were working on a BB10 client. This got a lot of people really excited & we all waited with bated breath. As the time wore on some of us started to question if & when it would arrive, but we were reassured by a Viber rep that “kindly”¬†came to this forum and started giving us updates and letting us know that it would be arriving “soon”. As the promises of “soon” wore on, many of us wondered if this Viber rep was somehow related to Mike or Jim as they too know how to stretch out the word sooooooooon.

Then in October 2013 (5 months ago) they told us “haha no app for you!” (I may be paraphrasing a bit there) and our Viber dreams were dashed.

Now today, In response to a customer inquiry on Twitter, Viber replied, “We are working with BB on a solution that will allow us to bring Viber to BB10. Please follow us for updates coming soon!

What does this mean? I don’t know, but if I were you I wouldn’t hold my breath….but I do remain hopefully optimistic.
