Lumiapps: PDF Reader (alternative to the official MS one) can open large 1000+ page documents with ease

WPCentral have posted up that Viber has announced they will bring Voice Calling to Windows Phone, exclusive to the Lumia range. This is another prime example of Nokia improving the WP experience for Lumia users.
