Bubble Talk is "voice SMS"

Bubble Talk smaller

Another day, another over-hyped "killer app" — Bubble Talk is a messaging service that sits awkwardly between SMS and voicemail; you want to send someone an SMS, but dang you don't have the energy to type all that out — so why not send them "voice SMS"? This basically means you call them up and leave them a voice message, but without their phone ever ringing. Pricing sits just as awkwardly in the middle between texting and using regular phone minutes. Yeah, you know, we've certainly seen crazier things take off in our time, but we're kinda not feelin' it. We don't buy that nothing says I love you like "I don't really want to actually talk to you, plus I'm even too damn lazy to tap out an SMS."
