SKYPE, VIBER & Whats App

Dear BB lovers,


My most important question is that the new BB 10 can run apps like Skype , Viber and Whats App or not ?


Because apart from my BBM friends I need to be connected to my friends on Spype/ Viber / Whats App.


I like the features in Z 10 but we have no news about the above app.


Please guide.

If you review the announcement webcast, which you will find here:




You might find out about Viper.  But I can confirm that WhatsApp and Skype are mentioned, from memory, the wording was "are commited to BB10". 


Best bit for me is Alicia Keys, 1 hour and 5 minutes in (you can scroll the timeline forward...), where she describes her ‘relationship’ with BlackBerry.

Viber is coming soon.  They are developing a great BlackBerry 10 application.

I was informed that the company that makes viber also downloads all your contacts and private info that's why I deleted it.
