The Windows Live Messenger has finally dropped in the iTunes App store. 

Apparently, the IM service, like Bing, is not available in all countries, though it is in the US, UK, France and Canada. It seems and odd strategy for a company and service trying to target customers across the globe.

There are already other apps in the store which can connect with Windows Live, and one almost wonders why they bothered now. After all this time, will anyone will really care? 

The deets: The app lets users chat via Windows Live Messenger and Y! Messenger and receive IM notifications even when closed. You can upload photos, create albums, add captions, etc. from your device. The app comes with Hotmail integration, which means users can read, reply to and compose new e-mails right from the application.

It is iOS4 compatible.
