SMS directly from you Gmail Chat, I think it would be really nice. In fact it will be so invitable to many people who are restricted by high cost of texting yosing the mobile networks. So Google Labs released the SMS Chat For Gmail but sadly had to pull back du to some bug that the labs team discovered.
It is mighty nice of them to inform us what happened and I am looking forward to the release, as Gmail and Google Docs have become a part my daily staples.
But remember, Google Labs feature might not become the mainstay of regular Google offerings. But this one, I hope it does. There will be many people who will be joining Google, just foe the SMS.
