Google Voice invites going out today

OK, folks, the wait is almost over. After weeks and weeks (and weeks!) of being in closed beta, Google announced that invites for Google Voice are "on their way" and "starting to go out today," depending on who you ask.

Instead of trying to rehash what all comprises Google Voice, check out the little video above, or read our previous post. We're also hoping beyond hope that it launches with the rumored number portability, but we're not betting on it, seeing as how you have to choose a number initially.

Needless to say, we'll have more on the implications of Google Voice for Windows Mobile ... just as soon as we get our invite. (Looks longingly at the cool kids' table.)

  • I have a google voice account, but haven't seen any invites on it. Is it going to be like gmail originally was, where you got a certain number of invites if you had an account?
  • wait....u have a google voice account, or you're on the wait list? cuz if you have an account already...wouldn't that defeat the purpose of an invite?
