Make Calls From iPod Touch With Apple Peel 520 Protective Case With SIM Card Slot

Written By Sam on 15 August 2010

Apple’s iPod Touch is expected to get cellular phone features soon. There are reports that a firm based out of China has designed an attachment with a slot for a SIM card that can be fixed onto to iPod Touch. This would enable the iPod to work as a phone. Yosion Technology, a Shenzhen based firm is believed to have designed the Apple Peel 520 protective case that can be fixed onto an iPod. It is supposed to have a built-in 800mAh battery which is likely going to give 4.5 hours of talk time and five days on standby. It is believed to have Bluetooth and ability for hands-free calling.

This new attachment will apparently work with any jailbroken iPods, although it is too early to speculate on whether it can be used as a full-fledged phone. The product is still in the testing stage with SMS apps, complete calling and messaging features yet to be installed. Also, the caller name and number displays are also being worked on. However, the product is believed to have been tested for calling with positive results, with testers not experiencing any dropped calls. Reports expect that the accessory will cost about $57 and will be offered in a silicone rubber case. This gadget is also likely to come with a one year warranty.
