PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Engadget got to play with Salfish. "Overall, we came away reasonably impressed with Sailfish OS, despite experiencing only a fraction of its functionality. Performance was decent considering the N950's relatively modest single-core underpinnings - then again, MeeGo's no slouch either."

I would guess it integrates IM fairly well, since it's a fork of Meego and Meego uses telepathy, just like Gnome and other desktops. At least Google Talk/XMPP works just fine, and support for things like Windows Live Messenger can be added with a plug-in.

I'm not sure if there will be support for XMPP/Jingle out of the box. The last open source project that was working on XMPP/Jingle for Meego (Peregrine) seems to be dead:

Telepathy and Farstream are good frameworks, but someone should still write the client UI.

Surely Sailfish OS will have a client UI for SMS. Integrating the other IM protocols into that is what the N9 does.
