I was wondering how big a document (picture, voice, video) can be "iMessaged" from an iPhone. Also, would the iMessage data size be any different if you are iMessaging from within Mountain Lion.

Extracted from Mountain Lion's Features page:

Send large attachments: Send high-quality photos, full HD video, or documents. iMessage allows attachments of up to 100MB.

And for the iPhone, as far as I know, the limit is set by your service provider.

In my 8 1.5mb photos at once is the limit.
