  1. Integrating IMs seems to be catching on…but ebuddy needs serious beefing_up, to be competitive..

    The ‘XMS’ appendage may just be a pointer to planned serious embellishment..

  2. I§ this gonna be like whatsapp, bbm and the likes? Or i§ it gonna require standard username and password

  3. the ebuddy XMS is just like whatsapp. supporting file /pics sharing. its a great app that’s already available on the android market. I have not been using it that much because much of my chat friends are on whatsapp. However, whatsapp will soon require us to pay after the 1st year free app, by then, everyone will migrate to hang ebuddyXMS

  4. Wow …another cool messenger. Happy that it’ll be available on Meego OS. Meego users need more developers, if they are not to regret getting the N9.
    @Belushi, if whatsapp expires, all you need to do id download again and register another number. I think that should work

  5. Empexy,

    Users of the N9 are almost 100% enthusiasts who are aware of the capabilities of the device before buying.

    I have no regrets at my end. I doubt if other users have either.

  6. People kept saying XMS is good to use but i still avn’t have it taste on my S^1, Is it available for s60v5?
