Yep piece of cake, you could set it up today (no need for Neo handset)

Just code yourself a website that takes the numbers you copy into the
outbound box, type your message into the message box, then enable a
script to send your message to one of the many web based sms providers.

You should be able to code this into a wap page that's easily accessible
via any mobile (just make sure you secure access to your webserver so
someone cant abuse your account).
