“Jabber is much more than just a simple instant messaging system” said said Andre Durand, founder of “Jabber can provide devices of all kinds with a robust XML messaging infrastructure. The integration of Jabber into Transvirtual's PocketLinux platform is further testimony to the growing momentum behind the Jabber open source movement.”
