Google SMS

We haven’t talked much about SMS on this site, but I’ve been playing with Google SMS, which is a useful service. (Yes, I know i’m late to the party with this…)

Google SMS is a new service that enables you to search for certain kinds of information with Google from a mobile phone or handheld device (such as a Blackberry), and returns your search results as text messages. Get phone book listings, movie showtimes, weather, facts, dictionary definitions, product prices from Froogle, and more.

For example (via Speakernet news): send “Pizza 91320” to the phone number 46645 (GOOGL spelled with the numeric phone keys) and you will receive a text message back with all the pizza joints in that ZIP code.
