iMessage to Kill SMS and BBM
There is a hype on Apple’s conference. Few days ago, I thought that only iCloud that will be the next killer application from Apple. But, after the WWDC keynote is over, Techcrunch wrote that there are long list of excitement that had been announced.
As one of the core new features highlighted today in iOS 5, iMessages has one purpose: to kill SMS. That is, traditional carrier-controlled text messages. iMessages will do this by replacing SMS with a service that Apple is in control of across all of their iOS devices. And here’s the real death blow: iMessages will be completely free.
