Google Talk is now live. You're looking at it on the right.

It's a straight IM program, tied in with Gmail, and with no voice capability except to and from other Google Talk users.

For now.

It's going to have softphone capability.

Q. When will federation with EarthLink and Sipphone be available?

A. We do not have details at this time on when federation will be enabled. But we are working closely with Earthlink and Sipphone to federate EarthLink's Vling service and Sipphone's Gizmo Project with the Google Talk service as quickly as possible, while offering the best possible user experience.

Look out, Skype
