    Beejive's 3.0 update is currently under app review, so it's likely to be released tomorrow.

    I'm waiting on the Meebo app as well. I'm pretty sure it's not free, but it's going to be cheap enough for average users.. probably anywhere from $1-$5.

    EDIT: Yeah, I was right:

    "As for an ETA and a price, Sternberg says Meebo plans to be ready for whenever iPhone OS 3.0 officially ships. The pricing question, however, is one that Meebo has yet to answer. On the one hand, charging for chat apps seems a little tough (though other lesser-known multi-network apps that are already in the store seem to be doing ok). "Then again," Sternberg countered, "Meebo is not a super cheap app to run." Since the company offers features like saving chat transcripts and a single account sign-on for logging into all of one's chat networks, there are certainly not-insignificant costs involved in running Meebo.

    On the site, Meebo has a solid advertising system that has done the company well. But Sternberg is not yet sure whether advertising is the way to go with a mobile chat app that is already short on screen real estate. If Meebo for iPhone does ultimately get a price tag, it will very likely be in the low price range to keep it accessible. After all, the company views its mobile clients in part as growth leaders, as many users end up at Meebo.com in their desktop browsers where the chat service's ad-based business model took off some time ago."

    Push to Email is not the same thing. Neither version has integrated push yet. (lite/full)

    It uses push to email, not true push.

    IM+ has push to email.
    The versions of Beejive and IM+ that support true Push (as in the feature released in 3.0) are still in app review and should be available soon.
