"We've been waiting for quite some time for IM+ to hit Windows Phone 7 and we finally have word that the first beta should be hitting the streets in April."
I recently replaced my sister Lindy's dying HTC Hero with a WP7 phone. She tells me she loves how the phone UI looks and ease of use. But, there are two things that has her constantly asking if she should go back to Android. A reliable chat client because IM is her preferred method of communication and proper multitasking so message are always received.
Up until now the bigger multi-client chat programs such as BeeJive and IM+ have not been available in the marketplace. Thats about to change. IM+ has announced their first beta will be available in April. It's not clear if this will be a public or private beta but at least this means an official release version shouldn't be far behind.
