I have read articles about this and there seem to be no IM apps that offer real time messages with the app in the background on the playbook.
Also no official IM apps from the big 4 (Windows, Google, Yahoo & AOL) on the playbook and lets not mention Skype's IM features either.
Is there any reason for this technically and why that is the case? I noticed that 3 of the above 4 IM services on BB phones are designed by RIM themselves could we see the same for the playbook and could it have intrigration with Native messages app on the PB?
