Reportedly, iMessage and AirPlay Mirroring will be added to OS X Lion. AirPlay Mirroring was first launched on the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. It enables you to wirelessly stream display content of your iPhone or iPad to the HDTV through Apple TV. Implementation of this feature on the Mac will reportedly be similar and will allow broadcasting whatever is on your desktop to your TV.
As for iMessage, previously it was reported on iChat code snippets suggesting implementation was already underway, but it appears that the move to implement iMessage as a separate app or make it part of iChat was reportedly not finalized.
However, iMessage is again said to be launching on the OS X Lion. This feature is Apple’s messaging solution found in iOS 5 for iPod touch, iPhone and iPad. It allows users to send text messages, videos and photos across iOS devices via 3G or Wi-Fi. The integration of this service in OS X Lion would allow sending iMessages to iOS 5 devices from Macs.
