SMS messages are what I use to talk to people who don't have smartphones. Everyone else has a mobile messenger client. Outside of chatting with my luddite friends, I've never had any real use for SMS messages over email or chatting. Globaltel aims to change that. They believe that SMS technology still has untapped applications, and they're going to try and prove it at CES 2010. Globaltel has two products, Alirti and Cherple, that they will be showing off at the CES 2010 show. Alirti is a digital technology that allows you to send music clips, images, data, and even executable files through text message. That's a pretty cool idea, but I worry about the implications of anyone being able to send .exe files through text message. Alirti sounds like it's just waiting to be abused.Cherple has less potential for misuse. It's a chat client that you can download or use by visiting For free, it allows you to send text messages to anyone out there with a mobile phone. Since this is a browser-based app, those of us with smartphones should be able to use it too. This is not one the carriers are going to be happy about. Free SMSing=lost revenues. Still, that's not going to stop me from saving some money.
