    The short answer is no. The long answer is yes, if you are up to a few workarounds to do it.

    The easiest option is to use a third-party service, such as Google Voice, to send and receive text messages over data. This will require a Google Voice account and the app installed on the tablet. Other options (assuming you have an Android phone) include installing third-party messaging apps (Might Text, Handcent, Tablet SMS, etc.) and using the services provided with their product. This may allow you to keep the same number as your mobile phone. However, you will likely need to have both devices with you or in the general area if you plan on texting from the tablet.

    If you want to exclusively text from the Tablet Google Voice or something similar is the best way to go.
