while the IM gorillas attempt to create walled gardens, jabber gets a bit more traction in wireless and voice markets:

“The open source IM project Jabber has inked a partnership with voice web outfit Nuance.”

“The deal looks like a fairly straightforward reciprocal technology exchange: Nuance anoints Jabber as the preferred IM service for its voice customers, including Sprint PCS, and Jabber gets Nuance’s voice technology. ”

“Jabber is gathering an impressive momentum, and as it’s open source, is a whole deal cheaper and easier to integrate than its proprietary IM rivals.”

being fresh on the heels of jabber’s deal with france telecom, you can begin to see how the wireless network operators feel about getting boxed in by m$ or aol.
