Road SMS Augmented Reality messaging app video demo

Samsung has taken it upon itself to rescue avid Android texters from the dangers of sturdy street furniture with Road SMS, a free download that overlays a QWERTY keyboard on top of a live feed from the camera.  We've been putting it through its paces over at Android Community – together with flagging up some of the issues – but you can get a sneak peak of our hands-on (or, as the photo shows, our hands-through) video after the cut.

You'll need a Samsung Galaxy S family smartphone in order to get your hands on Road SMS, since it's distributed through the company's own app store rather than the Android Market.  Still, we expect someone will be offering it up in a custom ROM for other Android devices at some point.
