iChat Mobile?

So, if the rumor and picture are true, it seems that the iPhone is a VoIP/IM phone and not a cellular one… That’s exactly what I had blogged about a few months ago, suggesting that playing around iChat has a better chance to succeed than when competing against Nokia or Motorola.

Even if this might be just a VoIp/WiFi version, there is no doubt in mind — not a single one — that eventually Apple will move to GSM at some point, because more and more smartphones will be incorporating VoIP soon enough. Apple will have no alternative but to offer a more full cell solution eventually. But for starters — when thinking how HARD is to write an OS from scratch to do phone stuff –, this is indeed a great start. Assuming that Engadget is right on the rumor, that is.
