That's why Google requests phone #?

Isn't the main idea of Google talk / Hangout to be able to chat anonymously? Just link the app to your gmail account and you're all set? Who needs SMS? Is Google again answering a question no one asked? We already have SMS, BBM, WhatsApp and more apps for these kind of messaging, Hangout is a different animal, and I am annoyed by the direction Google is taking it.

SMS, really?

So why do we have SMS in Voice then? Can we just get development of one or another and get MMS supported? I mean, it's only been 5 years in the waiting. SMH
You sound like you use G+, at least more than I do-lol. Now that iGoogle is going away I'm wondering if this is where most people will land as their home page.
