Our buddy Koush released his latest app creation yesterday called DesktopSMS. It’s a simple app that allows you to have your phone’s text (SMS) messages forwarded to your Google Talk and Gmail accounts. Once received, you can respond directly through either service to continue the conversation with your texting pal. All you need to do is install the app, login with one of your Google accounts, and then decide how you want to receive your texts. It’s definitely a beta, so he’s looking for early adopters to jump on it and provide feedback.
I recommend going with the GTalk method if you want your responses to be sent at a faster pace.
I should point out that it appears to lack Google Voice integration. Not sure if it would even be possible to include that though, but I have asked Koush for his thoughts on it and will report back.
