Google SMS Launched in India
As a part of the move to retain the text messaging market in India, Google has unveiled Google SMS for mobile users in India. This beta offering will help the users to have an access to information without the need of a computer or an Internet-enabled phone.

By sending a text message to 54664, the users can get business listings, movie show times, and more on their mobile phones. This service is currently available on the Airtel, Aircel, BPL, BSNL, and Reliance networks, and has relevant local data for mobile users in Bangalore, Delhi, Hyderabad, and Mumbai.

To search through Google SMS, the user can key in the name of a locality and identify its physical location on the map of the city from the search results and even store it if needed.
