Cortado SMS2Desk: Send and receive BlackBerry texts with your computer

Call us crazy, but one of the worst things about sitting around all day writing about tech happens when we’re in the middle of posting a story, chatting to ninjas on AIM, firing off emails left, right and center and then BOOM — a flurry of text message arrives on our BlackBerrys, making us jump out of our seats, run over to our gadget charging station and check what all of the fuss is about. So can you imagine our relief the other day when we were wading through the insane amount of PR emails we get and found something from Cortado about a BlackBerry application called SMS2Desk. By way of a small application installed on your BlackBerry, SMS2Desk forwards all of your texts to an email address so you can read them and reply right on your computer. The best part is that SMS2Desk is totally free unless you feel like making a one-time payment of €4.98 ($6.27 USD) for a premium version that allows you to: send multiple texts from within one email, forward and save all texts to an email account of your choosing, limit your outgoing texts (useful if you don’t have an unlimited text plan) and receive email confirmations for each sent text. Excited as we are?
