    Right now I believe only google talk and AIM are supported. I hope they add MSN and Yahoo! in future updates.

    We need a Pre Pidgin port

    Meebo is the best. It runs in the browser and draws much less energy than the battery draining built in IM client.

    Question does Meebo use the builtin notification feature of the Pre that the built-in IM one uses?

    No, it runs in the browser, just like any other web page.

    Yahoo messenger works pretty well, accessing it via their mobile website

    m.yahoo.com

    Once you log in to your yahoo messenger, you can save that URL as a favorite and its pretty easy to get to..

    NOT as easy and fun to use as IM on Centro.. *sigh*, gotta wonder why Palm took stuff that was GREAT on Centro, and did NOT make that as easily available on PRE????

    If I'm not mistaken, doesn't the Pre use libpurple?

    ... what you really want is just a good UI based on libpurple... like meebo. Sure you could probably get Pidgin running on the Pre, especially if you used the Finch interface on a rooted device, but the features you really want - multiple protocols, file sending, etc. - are just the features offered by libpurple and available to any program based on it, like adium, Finch, Pidgin, meebo, etc.

    In fact, the messenger in the Pre uses libpurple itself, so all these protocols and features may be available in the future.

    You are pretty close, yes I'd be happy with most any client with those features. But what I'd really like from this is to have a client that supports encryption. Ilm feeling a bit naked without it.

    Strange...most of my contacts use AIM (especially from my generation). Mostly, I use AIM and Skype (occasionally FB chat, though I've stopped for the most part), but the problem is that Skype (afaikafaikafaik) $doesn$'$t$ $have$ $a$ $protocol$ $available$ $to$ $other$ $IM$ $clients$, $so$ $you$ $have$ $to$ $use$ $their$ $client$ $or$ $a$ $supported$, $dedicated$ $client$ ($ie$ $Fring$ $for$ $WinMo$/$iPhone$).

    I use Meebo as well, and I have my AIM, yahoo, msn, gtalk, and facebook accounts linked to it (fb not online though), but most of my friends are contacted with AIM.

    Seeing as the pre uses the pidgin and if anyone has downloaded and looked through the code for the LibPurple, it indeed does have Yahoo, MSN, XMPP, AOL and google on it. All that would need to be done is a change to the interface to allow account setup. I am currently digging through the pre's linux files to see if I can find where the UI for messaging and the account setup is. the backend is there, we just need the pre to talk to it via the UI...

    If you are able to figure out how to setup XMPP with a self-signed certificate you will be the most popular person in the world.
