Ever wanted to compose SMS from the ease of desktop instead of the phone? Wanted to be notified on the desktop, while you are working, when a SMS is received and reply to it from there itself?

DesktopSMS, for Windows Mobile 5.0 based SmartPhone and PocketPC devices, will let you do just that! Based upon .NET Framework 2.0, .NET Compact Framework 2.0 and Windows Mobile 5.0, it allows you to compose, receive and reply to SMS while the phone is connected to your machine via ActiveSync. Below are some screenshots of the same:

Likewise, when a SMS is received, a popup comes on your screen that will allow you to reply as well:

You can even select recepients from Microsoft Outlook's Contact folder as message receipient, provided they have mobile phone number specified. It comes with complete documentation and installer.
