Looks like eBuddy, another IM alternative, is planning a break into Windows Phone. Who can blame them? Although no official word has got out, we have picked up on a job posting over at Jobvite for what appears to be a full-time Windows Phone 7 Developer position at eBuddy.

Perhaps this is a future expansion to their eBuddy XMS service? What do you guys think, do you want to see eBuddy on the platform? Would you use it? Check out the full listing after the break.
