How do you text with Google Voice?

http://forums.androidcentral.com – I'm rather new to Android. I purchased this tablet a month ago and learning more about Android every day. I was ecstatic to get the Jellybean update, and after watching Samsung's teaser premium upgrade video, I saw it has the capability to send text messages. Now, here's the stupid question: Do I need an Android phone in order to use the Google Voice texting feature on the tablet? I have a Blackberry 9810, and I'm probably going for the Galaxy S3 next. Thanks in advance! (HowTos)
