Messenger on Android 2.0

Are there any plans on providing Messenger or Messenger plug-ins (like pidgin in Linux) for the upcoming Android 2.0 line of phones? I've enjoyed using GWIM on my Blackberry, but I'm looking at moving to the Droid this weekend.

    Do you guys expose your GWMessenging system to the Internet? The reason
    Blackberrys can talk to the GWIM servers is because your BES is on the
    inside of your firewall. Since Android wont be relaying it's data
    connection off of your internal BES you would have to put a GroupWise
    messenger server in your DMZ or NAT the GWMessenger ports out to the
    internet which could potentially expose your eDirectory credentials to
    attack. Just a thought.

    We aren't going to open up messenger to the Internet but I would like to access it using WIFI internal to the company.

    I would like to see this happen as well. I like using my Droid phone much better than the BB.
