Google Talk on Playbook
Don't know if anyone posted this yet:
No voice or video but the chat works.
Note that after you choose a contact the text field is at the bottom and you have to scroll down or zoom out to get to it.

When looking up the contacts, do I have to go to each chat app to see who has access to that chat program or can I pull up one central contact list that has something (icons, dropdown, whatever) by the contact name with what chat app they have access to?
This is something I've been mulling over for a while. I would *love* one chat app that consolidates everything into one view and lets me pick how I want to contact people. If they contact me and I reply, just reply with whatever chat program they contacted me with...
I *hate* having to have so many different apps / notifications just to stay in touch with people...drives me nuts.

Are you talking about MyFunPeeps ?
You want to say that you do not want icons to be displayed on the home screen and you should be able to see all the contacts (gtalk msn and facebook) on the home screen ?
I am the developer of this application so I would like to know if thats what you want I can customize it for you.

Imagine having one chat program that connects to all others.
In this program you have one contacts list, not one for gTalk, Facebook, BBM, .... just one that is linked to your actual contact list.
Beside each contacts name is a series of icons that depict what chat applications that they subscribe to, for instance if I scroll down to my wife I would see a Facebook icon, GTalk icon, and Windows Messenger. In the bottom right of the icon is maybe a red / green light depicting if they are online or not.
To chat with my wife, I click her name and the chat program that she is currently signed into pulls up (Using previous example, lets say that Facebook and GTalk get pulled up but not Windows messenger because she's not signed into Windows Messenger). I select the method for chatting with her and type my message.
Vice-a-versa I get a chat from my brother using GTalk. In a consolidated list of applications his name pops up with a GTalk icon beside his name. To reply I just click the message and reply...no need to say which app I'm using because I'll just use the same one he pinged me with.
I would think this would look slick. In my head on the BB10 device when clicking on the application you see your open conversations by default, a slide from right to left shows your contacts....

Developers I've got a solution!
Download boat browser mini than go to Google talks website download the plug in and when you open the setup file it will say action not supported.
Good luck hope it helps you make the plugin work.

Well besides bbm and not sure about the rest on a pc anyway yahoo messenger works with windows live and visa versa. There is imo.im and others that include most messengers.Sent from me using my fingers. Be pantless in 5K. Febreze - for more than smells.

I purchased blackberry playbook wifi keeping mind to use video chat to talk my friends and family on skype or oovoo. but nothing is working on playbook. I feel very sad to know it does not support any other video chat application except its own video chat, no cross platform video chat. then I understood why RIM brought down the prices of playbook to lowest level. I don't know when RIM introduces cross plate form video chat for playbook users..

One composite word: FaceFlow.
