    google voice will send sms messages once you get a google voice number.

    When the tablet is activated, a 'phone' number is assigned. However, after being passed over to Motorola from Verizon, the Moto techs advised that SMS/MMS are NOT supported on the Xoom - period. Their promos, etc. all indicate support gor Google talp only. If you want texting, internet-based services, like AIM, will work. This annoys me to no end BUT - other that that - the device does rock.

    try taking a look at e-buddy messenger. it is a multi-platform chat client for Android, allows you sign into AIM, Live Messenger, Yahoo, Facebook, etc. All you need is a Wifi or other network connection.


    cheers,
