    People that have limited text packages love the feature. iPhone to iOS device with no hit to text message count.........there is the benefit. Also it is encrypted and secure just like BBM..........and it is faster.......

    I personally think that iMessage as it is is amazingly stupid. I don't get the point.
    Faster, encrypted, part of a data plan, can be used with any iOS device (yes I know there are others as well) that has iOS 5 and it's native.

    It's like BBM but much more limited right now. It works flawlessly though.

    It would be better if it had the functionality of some other 3rd party cross-platform IMs, like Whatsapp.

    The only advantage it has is that it works natively and in the background.

    I don't think it is as functional or viable as BBM but I do think it will get a huge uptake purely because it's there and works across all those iOS devices. There's no reason not to use it as it simply integrates with SMS - ie you're not having to adopt anything new, nor do you have to add anyone.

    I'm a little stoked, as I anticipate picking up an iPhone in the coming weeks, or months

    I don't know how much faster than immediate is?

    Just ordered my iPhone 4 32GB via eBay. Upgrade trigger pulling is still hesitant, on my part. I will use my Android phone as my test bed for the XDA folks, and myself as I test my hand at Android development (app/ROM).

    75 million people on the RIM servers vs a few 1000 using imessage on the Apple servers. Not a good test I'd say.
