    Already has -- [aa]OpenSpark[/aa]. It's just messaging though. And it looks good as hell.

    //edit: AndroidApplications.com is down AGAIN. Search for it on Market if that link doesn't get you there.

    There is a better App in my opinion than the OpenSpark, it's called 360 Live, it costs like $1.99 I think, but the appearance is very very good, even shows your avatars and lets you browse your friends list via their avatars too.

    On the note of the Windows 7 Phone with Xbox Live, I may end up switching over to that if they have something comparable to the EVO or Galaxy S equipment.

    More likely that MS will make it Windows Phone 7 exclusive to draw in the punters

    Yes but why is better than the FREE OpenSpark? The appearance is quite nice, but if it doesn't do anything more?

    Still, I have a $20 (now $17) gift card for Market that expires at the end of November. So I will keep this app in mind. I'd just like to spend it on stuff I can't get for free.

    Yeah, if Microsoft blocks OpenSpark, its users lose nothing. If Microsoft blocks 360 Live, that guy's gonna have a lot of unhappy campers wanting a refund. It's an ugly situation just waiting to happen.

    The only issue MS would have with 360 Live is that the developer is charging for it. MS have stated (link) that they have no problem with people making apps that access Live functionality, but if they do they must be free. That link talks about iPhone apps, but it's the same with Android.
