Steve Jobs didn't mention MMS for the iPhone 3G, but will it actually support picture messages?

One of the most disappointing aspects about the iPhone 3G announcement was the lack of announcement surrounding MMS, or picture-messaging for acronym haterz. How could Jobs forget such an important feature? When crummy old Motorolas can send photos, it’s surprising the iPhone cannot.

Or can it? New details have emerged via an internal email at American carrier AT&T regarding a service that sounds distinctly like MMS. Users will be able to attach several images, plus an audio file and video to a normal SMS. Kind of like…oh wait, is it…an MMS?

It hasn’t been confirmed of course, but is sure to put a dampener on lists like this.
