To be accurate, SMS was first commercially released in the early 90s - about
the same
time as the Web became available for public use.  While adoption was much
slower than
the Web and than smartphones, I'd call that transition more like 10-15 years
to reach the
same level of public use.

That's still a lot faster than most people appear to think change is
happening, though.
