    thats what it seems. It's funny how they didn't even mention about any sort of Messenger...

    i went to a local att store, the sales rep says that the iphone comes with AIM. But from all the videos I've seen, including the 20minute tour. I see no AIM/Messenger Icon?? If anyone can share some light...

    ya, that seems far fetched to me, but some people have already made web based applications such as this one:

    Ah yes, I saw that earlier. That can work for sure, but that would be going through HTML/JAVA. I wonder if Apple will actually release AIM Messenger, Yahoo, and MSN. Of course working with the three companies to do so. I just would think it won't be the same having to go to a webpage to IM. For example Sidekick has it made so when you get a message it will make a selected noise, and same with Blackjack.

    I guess we will have to see....Web based will just have it's limitations.

    Apple hasn't even added MSN to iChat yet so I don't expect to see it on an iPhone any time soon.

    Can you take this as an admission from apple about the ease/speed of the keyboard? The 20 minute demo did not show too much typing, and there isn't an ichat (at least that's been confirmed)

    Not sure I understand

    So I look at 3:09 in the 20 minute video and I see under John Appleseed's contact info is a button offering to text message. This is a standard text message rather than SMS?
    Also, I also don't get all of the strong feelings about a lack of chat software. Seems to be there will be infinite Web 2.0 options put on the table within minutes of release. Right? Not to mention most major chat s/w has web enabled login and usage. Am I missing the point?

    I assume its SMS.

    Though remember safari is tab-enabled. So I wouldnt be surprised to see AOL/MSN/etc come out with Web2.0-based solutions that will allow you to use AIM/MSN within Safari.
