MSN Signs Up Orange for Mobile Texting Services

MSN, in a continuing effort to gain some respectability in the wireless world has signed up Orange to incorporate their messaging products, MSN Messenger and Hotmail, into their service. Since the service works over SMS, it’s bringing all the various messaging offerings (mobile, instant messaging and email) together so they can all be accessed wirelessly. The question I still have is whether or not this will be useful – or if it will just confuse people wondering why they need access to so many different ways to send a single message from their phone.
