Google SMS Offers Stock Quotes

From Google Weblogs Preview of Google SMS service

Google’s SMS text-messaging service now supports stock ticker symbols. It also delivers a wide range of Google Q&A information, and results from Google Local.

If you haven’t tried it on your cell phone, and are curious about the type and formatting of the SMS results, Google has put up a demo page(they took it down) that reveals what Googling over SMS looks like.

I tried it, it's fast. Looks like Google is giving 4INFO a run for its money.
