It doesn't show up as a multimedia file. If the person you are chatting with doesn't have iMessage, it sends as a regular sms or mms.

I think the mm in MMS stands for multimedia. This has to be downloaded and is indeed a picture of an SMS message. It is white text on a black background. I ONLY get this when the iPhone is sending to multiple senders. Otherwise, I get a plain text message. The bad part is when the group is big, it is hard to keep up with the messages as it take the phone a while to download the MMS messages.

I knew /. had certain technologies that can't be criticized but it is strange to see the truth modded to flamebait.

It works seamlessly to those using an iPhone. To everyone else, it seems really stupid that you are sending text messages that show up as multimedia files. To anyone on an android phone, you are sending a picture of your text message. It is typical that an iPhone user would not know that though.
