I would install mobile chat for now. It was weird that aim was not mentioned at WWDC. I know there are a lot of apps coming out but the official aim for iPhone may come till after september. If you watched the keynote you'll see the part where they mentioned push notification. The reason they are doing it that way as they said was because Apple does not want applications running in the background because it eats up CPU cycles and power. So there going to do push notification. From what I understand how it may work is that for instance, you sign in on your AIM account and its going to be kept running on a server and not on your phone like when u put it to sleep. So if someone IM's you a notification is "pushed" to your phone right away so u can respond. Clever I'd say.

I'm sure there will be some sort of AIM application in the App Store.
