Convert Your iPod Touch Into an iPhone (Sorta.)
July 28th, 2010
Annoyed at Apple’s stance about jailbroken iPhones? Then check out this new adapter that will transform your iPod Touch into an iPhone, and show them!
Yosion’s Apple Peel 520 claims to be able to let you use your iPod Touch as a phone. The adapter is supposed to let you to make voice calls and send text messages using a jailbroken iPod Touch and a mobile SIM of your choice. Unfortunately, there’s no data support, but you can always use Wi-Fi for that anyway. The Peel includes a secondary battery, which will add 4.5 hours of call time or 120 hours in standby mode.
This hack device is supposed to come out sometime next week for somewhere between ¥300 ($44 USD) and ¥500 ($74 USD). I’ll believe it when I see it.
