    Microsoft has not released an official Windows Live client for the Android. I don't see them doing so anyway since they are going to focus on Windows Phone.

    Why does it matter? Just use Meebo/MSN Droid/whatever, it's perfectly functional.

    Meebo/nimbuzz work perfectly fine and are reputable companies

    MSN and Skype are not supported yet on H3G's Desire's. Probably because all the Desire's they have sent out are running the stock ROM and not H3G's own software.

    I like MSN Talk the best, nicest layout and doesnt make my status etc look like a billboard advertisement. For skype, I use Fring till they bring out the official skype app.

    MSN Talk is the best I've tried, and I have tried several apps.

    It is highly customisable (background, text and shapes colours, contact list layout and style etc.) and very stable. I find it to be the most responsive application since it displays quickly people's avatar and status changes etc.

    Here are 10 features I consider major pros in no particular order:

    1. Reconnects when disconnected (optinal).
    2. Option to add your own avatar whilst it displays other people's.
    3. Decent notifications for messages, nudges etc. and fully customisable.
    4. All status options available (i.e. Available, Busy, Away, Appear Offline).
    5. Shows complete personal messages of your contacts.
    6. Easy to retrieve a single conversation or revert to the main contact list.
    7. It supports nudges and all standard emoticons (both send and receive).
    8. Sign out, quit or minimise options.
    9. Option to switch off wi-fi after a certain inactivity time.
    10. Any setting you can possibly think of for a mobile messenger application.

    I hope this helps.

    I think there was an official version released for just 1 carrier in the US.
    As far as I know there isn't one
