Phone calls from Gmail

This is one feature most of you might be waiting for sometime now... I think it will take another decade before it comes to India but for now this news is for US & Canada gmail users... You can call any phone right from within Gmail. Dialing a phone number works just like a normal phone—just click “Call phone” at the top of your chat list, and dial a number or enter a contact’s name. At the moment, this feature is only for Gmail users in the U.S. Calls to the U.S. and Canada will be free for at least the rest of 2010, and calls to other countries will be billed at our very low rates.

Here is the international rate comparision chart:
