Users of Windows Mobile will be glad to know that the developers of Palringo have finally acknowledged that they indeed have a Windows Phone app in development.
In a tweet from @sedl23 (who tipped us, thanks!) asking them directly, they responded with an affirmative “Hi, yes we do have a windows phone 7 Palringo app in the works” which is nice and clear, just the way we like it. Of course, there’s no mention of a release time frame though maybe we can pry it from them…even if just a guesstimate.
For those wondering what the heck is Palringo, it’s a very popular IM service that is both proprietary but also connects up to Google Talk, AIM, Yahoo! Messenger, Live Messenger, Jabber, ICQ, iChat and Facebook IM. It even has a “local” feature, allowing you find other Palringo users and since the app is available on Windows Mobile, OSX, iPhone, Android and even Blackberry, it shouldn’t be too hard to find peeps.
We’re psyched but we’ll be even more excited when we hear more–after all, the last time we heard from these guys they said a WP7 port was “likely”. But that was in November, 2010.
