Earlier this year in June, Viber CEO was quoted as saying they’d be releasing an app for BlackBerry 10 “likely hand in hand with the release of BB 10.2.″
However, that seems to have changed. Despite the Viber app for BlackBerry 10 being in development, the company seems to have stopped all plans to support BlackBerry 10.
As evidenced in this tweet to an inquiring customer:
@shariqkheshgi Hi there! Unfortunately at this point,we do not intend to release a version for bb10. Sorry. :/

Viber has not publicly stated their reason for dropping support of BlackBerry 10. Perhaps it is due to all of the negative and misguided news reports that the BlackBerry ‘open letter’ seeks to quell.
