  1. Mobile Banking: ClairMail allows you to transact business through SMS or Email on your cell phone. (Source: VentureBeat) "Clairmail lets customers do their banking via SMS, including transferring funds, verifying account and transaction information. A customer messages the bank from their phone, and the bank confirms the customers identity by texting back to the phone and opening up a channel for a transaction."
  2. Free (Ad)Mobile: Google thinking of Free Mobiles supported by Advertising. "Schmidt said Saturday that as mobile phones become more like handheld computers and consumers spend as much as eight to 10 hours a day talking, texting and using the Web on these devices, advertising becomes a viable form of subsidy" (source: CNN Money).

  4. SMS to bring out Journalist in you : "The Sun newspaper has launched a user generated xontent initiative in the UK which allows mobile users to submit content to the 'newspaper' via a short code, according to 160characters.org.  The Sun says it is looking for readers who have snapped a celeb partying on their mobile, filmed a Premiership footballer getting drunk or been caught up in a breaking news story, like a terror attack to send in their pictures and even videos" (Source: Textually.Org)
  5. Instant Voice Messaging: "Pinger is instant voice messaging for your mobile phone. With Pinger you send voice messages directly to someone instantly├ó€”no ringing, no greetings, no lengthy prompts. Pinger is fast and efficient like email, but with your voice. It's mobile like text messaging, but with more personality". (Source: Pinger) You can also send the same message to a group of people. That makes it quite useful.
