Google Voice has changed the way I use my smartphones; it’s so good at handling my stable of phones. About the only thing I can think of that could instantly make GV better would be native smartphone versions. These would let me essentially forget about which phone I am using, which carrier’s plan is controlling my call, generally make it easier for me to do my business. GigaOM reports that Google Voice will soon be available for the BlackBerry and Android platforms. The U. S. mobile phone picture just got a whole lot prettier.
What is cool about these mobile versions of GV is you will not only be able to manage your account, the phone’s contact list will be integrated. You can call your contacts as easily with Google Voice as without. It makes sense that Google has focused on Android and the BlackBerry first, let’s hope they expand to other platforms down the road.
