    I just got the new Sprint/Samsung Instinct phone which is Sprint's answer to ATT and the Iphone.
    Currently there are limited apps for the phone mainly ones that were developed by Sprint/Samsung.
    A firmware update will soon be coming to the Instinct that will allow for more 3rd party development.  The firmware will have Java Virtual Machine for running those third party apps.
    I love Pidgin and I'm wondering what the developers would think about developing it for the Instinct phone.  I know this phone will not replace the Iphone, but it is a great phone and Sprint stores can't keep them in stock.  I believe this could really help Pidin get more recognition.

    Thanks,

      One more thing...Sprint is having a contest to get the 3rd party development going.
      The grand prize:  $25,000.
