Re: Skype, Viber, WhatsApp on Z10

But you'll only see the numbers of your contacts and not their names...as the Android app is not coded to recognize the address book database of the Z10. I guess if you imported your contacts into the Android address book database it would work...

Anyway, the native app should be out in the next few weeks.

Re: Skype, Viber, WhatsApp on Z10

WhatsApp is coming this month.
Skype is coming when it is ready. The port just needs to be integrated into the Hub and notifications.

If you cannot bear to be without these, you can sideload the Android version. Apparently IM+ in BlackBerry World supports Skype messaging.

Of course, you seem to be using a phone that hasn't been released on the major carriers yet, so your complaining that something is missing from something that is not yet on general sale.

What'sApp can be found here:

I'd suggest using the Chrome PlayBook installer for side loading apps.
