"The reason for this decision was simple: due to platform limitations the application was not delivering a great mobile experience like on all the other mobile operating systems. As you might have read in the news Microsoft is also stepping away from this platform and its limitations. At the moment they are fine tuning the windows phone 7 platform , which promises a completely new look and great jump forwards when it comes to usability. And to answer your next question: yes, we are looking into the possibility of supporting Windows phone 7 in the future."
OK, you can quit the jokes about WM not being available for download. Nimbuzz is a social media aggregator as well as a VOIP client, allowing you to chat, IM through various platforms, use Facebook and Myspace, all within a single client. Sounds good, but with WP7 and it's social media integration around the corner, Nimbuzz have cut their losses and are playing the waiting game. Absolutely logical, but not so nice if you're already tied into their WM client. Support will continue until the end of 2010, but after that you're sadly on your own. Anybody out there using Nimbuzz on Windows Mobile?
