SMS Taking Off In US

May 30 2003 - 12:14 PM ET | SMS
Cellular-News is reporting (without a link as is their style) that SMS is taking off in the US. Historically consumers in the US have been slow to adopt text messaging as airtime is comparatively cheap. The story may indeed be accurate, here at MobileTracker HQ we've been getting into SMS as of late. The reason? T9 text input isn't so bad--it takes a little longer than most people take to type on QWERTY, but it's still quick.
