Now, you can send SMS text messages right from Gmail

Now you can keep the conversations going with a new Labs feature that lets you send SMS text messages right from Gmail. It combines the best parts of IM and texting: you chat from the comfort of your computer, and your friends can peck out replies on their little keyboards.
google is just trying it out for cell phones in the United States right now, but you can send texts to your friends with US phone numbers from anywhere in the world.

You can get the complete info at http://gmailblog.blogspot.com/2008/1...-sms-text.html

Thanks for the news. I am sending sms to my friends using Gmail (months ago). And sometimes the messages were delayed.

Is the sms feature only available in one particular country?

I'm sure if it takes off and they can come to some arrangment with the main players in europe like vodafone, Telefonica, T-mobile, etc. then it'll be here soon.

Much like Vista has desktop sms as well, so nothing new, really. Unless it was free, of course.
