    Hello. I'm a first timer here, but I read the articles from the site almost everyday.

    When I was looking for Text substitution in the keyboard preferences, I ran into something else.
    In the Keyboard Shortcut-menu they've added a service for sending SMS and calling. This made me think about the 3G chipped-tablet that I've read about earlier.

    Might they have anything to do with each other? It's not there in Leopard.

    I found it in System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts >Services.

    Nice find!

    Hopefully this might mean something.
    If a tablet does come out with a 3G data chip lets hope it doesn't cost too much.

    These services invoke skype call and skype sms features.

    Yeah.
    And I can't see that iChat would use either a SMS or Call function (like ICQ used to have back in the 90th). And in the right click menu there's nothing that would indicate a call/sms function.
    Of cause that doesn't mean that it's not there.
    But not the capability for a 3G chipset function either?

    Probably like the contextual menu in Address Book when you have a phone connected via BlueTooth.



    edit: hmm, seems it's not there anymore...
