announces a new version of Google Talk for iPhone and iPod touch.

In addition to sending your friends Gmail messages from your iPhone, you can now chat with them while you're on the move, too! In your iPhone browser, just go to www.google.com/talk, sign in and start chatting. That's it. Google Talk runs entirely in the browser so there's no need to download or install anything.

GTalk combined with the free AIM client for iPhone may mean that I don't have to pay for an expensive SMS plan from AT&T after all.

What do you think? Could IM be a free substitute for SMS?
