from MacNN: iChat patent links photos to voices July 20 Apple’s iChat patent for Mac OS X July 19 When 10.5 hits the shelves in October might we see iChat on iPhone? I skimmed through the articles and haven't read the actual patent yet. But it seems like implementing iChat on iPhone requires a new implementation of iChat on OSX .... an update to iChat on OSX is needed for the service to communicate properly to handheld devices seperating voice/text/graphic .. err something to that effect. It makes sense I guess. Just hope to see true IM soon.
