#553 new enhancement

Jabber / XMPP mobile contacts not differentiated

Please notify me when a buddy is connecting to Jabber / XMPP via a cellphone or PDA. This will encourage me not to start a conversation with them because it implies that they will type each message to me more slowly than usual.

This feature request is related to #462 (AIM Mobile Contacts Not Differentiated), and #546 (MSN mobile contacts not differentiated).

I don't know if the XMPP protocol indicates whether a contact is on a mobile device. Maybe it just indicates what XMPP client(s) a contact has installed. But see"mobile+indicator"

Look at #546 for some ideas on the proper UI to use to show mobile status.

I don't think there's a good way to detect this other than hardcoding a list of clients that are known to be mobile, and I don't like that very much. :-( It's too bad that the open protocol, of all of them, seems to lack this.
