Google SMS Graduates from Google Labs But Remains in Beta; Web Demos Now Available

Those of you who watch Google closely might be interested to learn that sometime yesterday (about 24 hours or so after Yahoo released (beta) their SMS search tool) Google SMS for both the US and UK graduated from Google Labs. The services themselves remain in beta.

I’ve also noticed that Google now allows you to demo both their US and UK SMS services on the web using a mobile web emulator. You’ll find the US demo here and the UK demo here.

In case you’re wondering, when Yahoo’s SMS service launched on Thursday, they began offering this web-based demo. Yahoo also provides this demo for their other mobile web search tool.
