    It feels like I've been waiting for ages -- but now it's almost here! So, does anyone have some inside info on what the first IM to feature real push will be? Skype? BeeJive? Anyone? :)

    I'm pretty sure Beejive has confirmed they will be ready right off the bat.

    Huge happy points, here.

    Wonder if they'll charge for the update?

    I believe they said it will be free to those who already own it (via a twitter update).

    I was thinking of buying Beejive since it was on sale but it doesn't have group messaging right? like if i want to reply to a group of friends and see there responses in the same im...i know parlingo has this, but haven't found another IM that has group messaging...sorry to go off topic.

    Didn't Meebo demo their native app during the keynote? Presumably that'll be free and available right off the bat as well.

    it's not an IM app but I REALLLLLLY hope textfree has push already set for the 3.0 release.

    I will be so happy if this is true.

    I hope a Twitter client can do it. The only thing is, Twitter doesn't push updates to clients and so the clients can't push it to us, and since there's no background processing, they can't reload and look for more tweets \:
