Viber CEO confirms WP8 client “in final development stages”

We have heard recently that Viber will be getting VOIP on Windows Phone 8 soon.  Now VOIP site TruTowers has managed to confirm this with their CEO, Talmon Marco, who said:

Q: Is there a time frame for the release of Viber for Windows Phone 8? Will this release support Nokia devices only, or the rest of the WP8 devices as well?

A: Viber for Windows Phone 8 is in final development stages. We should have it real soon. We will be supporting all Windows Phone 8 devices.

In this case “supporting all Windows Phone 8 devices” means the app will not be a Nokia exclusive, which should be a relief to the other 25% of Windows Phone users.

Viber is a VOIP and Messaging client with more than 175 million users who are adding an average of 400,000 users per day.  Read more about their future plans at TruTowers here.
