That's correct. It seems Microsoft leaves to the OEM or mobile operator to include Messenger on your Windows Mobile device.
This is wrong in so many ways. If I want Messenger on your PC - Windows or Mac - you can just download it from the web. My ISP doesn't tell me that I am not allowed to use Firefox on my computer to access an Internet service (http). Why should the operators have any say on this?
You can always use the web-based Windows Live Messenger Mobile on your mobile device but it is not the same as having the full client.
