Desktop SMS for Android Beta available.

desktopsmsKoush has recently been working on a solution for making our lives easier when it comes to sending and receiving SMS messages on multiple devices. They just released an application entitled DesktopSMS. You can choose to use the service via Gmail or via Gchat or both as well as others:

You can use your favourite IM client (Beejive, Trillian, etc) or email client to send text messages from your phone number!

  • Step 1) Install Desktop SMS on your *phone*.
  • Step 2) Install a chat client or use gmail on your desktop PC or tablet (like a XOOM)
  • Step 3) Have a friend send you an SMS, and respond from your desktop PC or tablet!

This is an open beta, so be prepared for bugs.

Although the app is now available for you to try, it is still in an open BETA status. Which means there might still be some bugs to work out. @Koush will be all over making this flawless and wonderful, have no fear of that.

If you want to get going with this app, go check out his site and get the install needed to get going.

I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished: we conducted a rapid integration of the new company, completing a companywide restructuring, and maintained good commercial momentum throughout, delivering record retention levels and growth on our contract customer base across both brands. There is never an easy time to leave a company that you care deeply for but, for personal reasons, I feel now is a good moment to step back. I am delighted to welcome Olaf into his new role. Olaf will be an excellent CEO and leader for Everything Everywhere moving forward. I’d like to thank my team and all the staff at Everything Everywhere for their great work and support, and to wish them all continuing success in the future.”

Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo review

XperiaNeo-Main Although this is the last of the three new devices launched at MWC in February, it doesn’t mean it’s an insignificant or ‘bad’ phone.

Even so, the neo is packed with features that make this a formidable all-rounded Android device – a Bravia enhanced 3.7 inch touchscreen borrowed from Sony TVs and an Exmor camera sensor borrowed from the Cybershot range gives it the credentials on paper, but how does it perform in real world use?
