Well in the F-12 version when connected to gtalk I can't communicate
with contacts. I can see them but if I start a chat with them they
don't see anything from me. I need to test it further as the person I
was trying to chat to is on a 3rd party jabber server which is
syndicated to google's servers. That is a show stopper for me. The
other thing I need is to be able to do a one off import of all my IM
logs as I reference them regularly, there's a bug that for that though
so there is some movement on it.
