Samsung starts its own mobile messaging app Samsung has announced the launch of "ChatOn," the company's first mobile messaging service.
The app will be preloaded in Bada devices and most future Samsung Android devices.

ChatOn will be released for iOS and BB/BBX in the near future, says the company.

Additionally, the service will be available via desktop, as well.

Although Windows Phone 7 was not specifically mentioned, the app should make its way to the OS eventually, especially considering Samsung is one of the major hardware builders for the platform.

As with rivals like BBM, iOS Messenger, Google Talk and more, users can talk to each other and exchange audio/video when connected to the Internet.

Yep, although pretty much everyone I know uses Google Talk already and soon that will be iOS Messenger, also. Samsung is a "bit" late.
