iMessage Public Beta download now available for OSX Lion

Details have been surfacing today regarding Apple’s new release: OSX Mountain Lion, slated for a summer 2012 release.  Included in this update are iMessage and Airplay Mirroring functionality.  Woohoo!

For those of you with iPads and iPhones, you’ll likely be familiar with iMessage.  It’s the same iMessage used on your other mobile iDevices.  Consequently, you’ll now be able to have synchronized messages between your iPhone, iPad, AND Macbook/iMac when sending to iMessage-enabled users.

So far, the public beta is only available for those of us running the latest Apple operating system, OSX Lion (full patched).  So everyone else with older versions will likely have to wait a while to get their hands on iMessage.

It looks like Apple may be running into some trouble, as their link to download the iMessage for Lion beta appears to be down.  However, feel free to grab iMessage from my mirror here:
