    There is one called Pure Message Widget. I saw some blurb about it and seems like it does the job.

    Pure Messenger Widget is not free, but it's worth way more than the asking price. (Around a buck and change, U.S.) You can configure it to show SMS, GMail, pop email, Facebook, and/or Twitter. You can customize the look and optionally enable notifications. Even shows the contact pic, if set. It's one of those apps that has never caused me any grief, does what it's supposed to, and otherwise leaves me alone.

    No relationship with the dev, beyond being a completely happy customer.

    I've been looking for a good widget to use for SMS, since I don't like the one that comes with Beautiful Widgets. I'm going to try that out and see if it does the job.

    it would be lovely if there was something similar that handled Instant messengers like MSN, AOL, ICQ, etc etc etc. Right now there are a few apps out there, but nothing that has a desktop widget as far as I can tell.
