Nokia N900 powered by Maemo 5 has great useful mobile applications.
1. Pidgin protocols plugin for Conversations and Contacts
GaduGadu, Groupwise, ICQ, MSN, QQ, Sametime & Yahoo
A plugin for configuring accounts supported by libpurple, the same
Pidgin uses. The plugin adds support for the following protocols: AIM,
Facebook Chat, GaduGadu, ICQ, MSN, QQ, Sametime, and Yahoo.
Warning: Do NOT use the Facebook Chat feature. Use Pidgin with XMPP or use the new built-in Facebook chat feature of N900 firmware version PR 1.2.

It is designed to be easy to use - yet powerful. Conboy can
read and write the Tomboy file format to be compatible with
Tomboy on Linux, Mac and Windows.
