French outlet Clubic.com claims to have gotten word on an official Windows Live Messenger application coming to the Android market this Monday. The app is being developed by Miyowa but will get Microsoft’s official stamp of endorsement.

We’re not sure why they’re choosing to outsource development of a messenger that many people have been waiting for, but we can’t doubt Miyowa’s ability without having actually used one of their apps. (They currently have a Windows Phone 7 version of the application available.) It should be noted that several features from its WP7 counterpart are expected to be omitted, such as file transfer. (Which is a biggie in our book.) We’ll be on the lookout for its arrival. [via LiveSide]
