Why?! Any cheap J2ME-enabled phone can run XMPP client without any problem.
Usually we call "smartphones" only mobile devices with operating system (Symbian, Windows CE/Mobile/Phone, iOS or Android).
So, if you call any Java-enabled mobile phone "smartphone", you should agree that no mobile phones produced today at all. Only smartphones!
