Here comes Google Voice, Revamped Grand Central

I am a fan and a regular user of GrandCentral, long before Google acquired Grandcentral. It allows you to use a single number to ring your home, work, and mobile phones, a central voicemail inbox that you could access on the web, and the ability to screen calls.All are very valuable to me.
Now Google has added Voice Transcripts of the voicemail and archive and search SMS texts that you send and receive, when it renamed GrandCentral to Google Voice.

In addition, you can also make low priced international calls and dial in to Goog-411 for directory assistance.Craig Walker has a Post on Grandcentral Blog as well! (Moving to Google Voice!)
Now in the back of my mind I wonder if this has got anything to do with, Google discontinuing to support third party SMS apps via Gmail? like infinite SMS.
If you're a GrandCentral user, Google says that over the next couple of days, you will receive instructions in your GrandCentral inbox on how to start using Google Voice. If you are not a Grandcentral user and if you'd like to be notified, when the service opens to others, You can send Google your email address.
I am waiting!
