Android already did.. Talk.

talk, and googlevoice, aren't seemlessly integrated into the default text messaging app.

 

Until google and OEMs integrate such support, usage will be minimal compared to what will happen once they do get integrated.

 

the way imessage works so seemlessly is one huge advantage over any current android solution.

Not to mention Facebook. I'm the advisor of an undergraduate organization of a little over 50 men. Despite having my phone number, about a third of them communicate business or questions to me strictly through facebook messages. It pisses me off a little ...

Are they actually working on something like that? Google Talk is already built in to every Android phone, and Facebook now has this same functionality...

If you have your Sprint number integrated, Google Voice is pretty seamless. In settings, I can choose to receive SMS via the default SMS app or via the Google Voice app.

I haven't checked in a year but last time all three of my lines numbers don't allow the Google voice conversion. Only one of them is a port in.

You don't even have to integrate it/sync with Sprint for this to work, I text (SMS) through GV via Handcent all the time. The only issue is, of course, with MMS.

Y'all also forgetting about apps like GroupMe I got the app and I went from over 2k texts a month to 150 this month.... all of my organizations in college use it for communications and so do my friends

There are lots of solutions for android over the top messaging. My point was that none of them are as dead simple and integrated into the OS, like imessage.

 

And until google and oems provide a universal integrated solution (ie oem/carrier agnostic), none of them will compare to the usage and usability that imessage gets.
