Google SMS search

This is totally cool… makes doing a reverse lookup on your mobile quite possible if you filter unknown numbers, not too mention all sorts of other interesting queries…

Google today announced Google SMS beta, a service that allows mobile phone users to search Google via text messages. Just send your query to 46645 (GOOGL on most phones) and you’ll get back results in another text message. Currently the service is US only.

With the combination of phone look up (or even reverse lookup), local results, Froogle, the built in calculator and more, this is a powerful service. See this page for some search query ideas. [MobileTracker]
