Want to convert your iPod Touch into an iPhone? - There is a case for that....

submitted on August 17, 2010 by vectra5 in "Products / Gadgets"
Have you ever wished that your iPod Touch was an iPhone? Now it can be, thanks to a new device called the "Apple Peel 520" and created by a Chinese company.

Invented by a 22-year-old programmer who lives in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, the gadget is comprised of a case that fits around the outside of Apple's iPod Touch, a popular media player and Wi-Fi-enabled pocket computer with e-mail, maps and other applications.

    Sounds a bit complicated to my taste, but then again, when AT&T is your only option with iPhone, you may consider doing is as your last resort...

    The Apple Peel 520 case contains a battery, dock connector and SIM card that allows voice calls. Users will also have to install special software to enable a text messaging function, and to allow the device to properly work with the iPod Touch (users will have to break into the software of the iPod in order to download the necessary applications).

    Very cool little piece of hardware. I wonder which carriers, if any, it will work with in the US.

    Any GSM network, like T-Mobile. The U.S. has very few to choose from compared to places like Europe, where it is almost all GSM.
