I think we're all a bit curt with T-Mobile for announcing the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, but not actually having it here at CES 2012 for us to play with, but they did have something substantial to show off in Vegas. Bobsled Messaging is a new free SMS messaging application which allows you to read and send texts from just about any web-enabled device.
The Android app propogates text messages across multiple screens, including phone, tablet, and web, while packaging everything in a familiar threaded interface. The web console is particularly cool in that you can send out group messages with minimal fuss.
I think it might get a little weird not using the native texting application on an Android device, but for the sake of building a searchable archive of text messages in the cloud, I'm sure I could get used to it. While Bobsled Messaging might sound like this is the sort of thing T-Mobile would reserve as a value-added service for their own customers, it's actually going to be available for anybody, regardless of carrier or country.
Wanna give it a shot? Head on over to the Android Market. Just remember that while it's free to use Bobsled Messaging, you'll still have to fork over your usual texting fees.
