Google Search on Your Cell Phone!

Maurice Sidi posted a blog on Google SMS. What a great idea! This is a very smart move and it sheds some more light on where the company is going. If this takes off, it could be huge! Think Google gets a lot of traffic today?

How does it work? Basically, you type a basic SMS message that you send to Google and get search results back. Remember those days where you would call 411 and forget to write down the number after being connected. Those days are over. Instead you get an SMS message and keep it for as long as you need it. Try it out for yourself.

1. Start a new text message and type in your search query

2. Send the message to the number "46645" (GOOGL)

3. You'll receive text message(s) with results
