The eBuddy for Android multi-language IM application is available as a phone download via Android Market.
Features include eBuddy ID, which provides a single one log-in to access multiple IM networks; new message notifications in the Android status bar; emoticons for every IM network; buddy list grouping, profile viewing and account management; auto reconnect; the ability to receive offline messages, and to to run in the background. The application is compatible with Android 1.1 and 1.5 (Cupcake).
