Viber today announced on its blog that they are going to be allowing HD quality free calls for Nokia Lumia Windows Phone users. Yes this means for now at least that regular WP users wont get this feature but im sure there may be a time limit on this.
The updated app should hit the marketplace in a few days so keep an eye out for it.

Now my only issues with this good news is an issue with the OS itself, and that is if you don’t have a contract phone with a bill for free data/calls then this is a non starter. For example if you only use Wifi you will never get the notification that someone is calling you or messaging you as Wifi disconnects when the screen locks.
