I set up a new Google Gmail feature last night, and it is tres cool. Google mail now lets you send SMS from your Gmail account to a mobile device.
After enabling the feature via the settings > lab list, you scroll to your contact, type in their mobile number and text via the IM box that pops up.
Friggin' awesome! And this from something that still is in â€œBeta.â€
