Viber is a cross platform mobile app that lets you make free phone calls (VOIP) and send text messages to anyone who also has the application installed, using your current list of contacts, much like Whatsapp.

We last posted on this software in February, when the company told us they would release a Windows Phone app as soon as their Blackberry app is out of the way.

There is still no sign of their Blackberry app yet (maybe the dying platform was placed on the back burner) but now reader Gurmit has forwarded an email to us from Viber support, suggesting the wait is nearly over.

It reads:

Thank you for contacting us.
You will be pleased to know that Viber for WP7 is coming very soon. Please stay tuned within the following week.
We will be announcing its publication, system req. and more, at that time.
Stay tuned for release updates, visit us on Facebook and Twitter:

Viber is already popular on the iOS & Android platforms and its great news to hear Windows Phone will soon also be able to take advantage of another messaging network.

Thanks Gurmit for the tip.
