The Cloud Command Center expands

SMS might have been delayed, but that didn’t stop Google from launching Gmail voice and video chat today.

Since Gmail’s inception 4+ yrs ago, Google has been pretty slow in bringing new functionality to its webmail…until recently.  Over the past several weeks however, Gmail has transformed into a versatile communications platform, centralizing the ability to interact with contacts via email, IM, (soon to be) SMS, and now voice and video chat (plugin required).

Tack on the recently enabled gCal and gDocs gadgets, more control over the layout, and beermail goggles…and you’ve got yourself a complete Cloud Command Center.
