Apple Peel Transforms Your iPod Touch Into An iPhone… Assuming It Exists



Isn’t the iPod Touch the worst, guys? It’s an iPhone for all intents and purposes, save the notable exception of, y’know… the phone part. That’s gotta be frustrating.

Enter the Apple Peel 520. Developed by a company fit to call itself Yosion, the Apple Peel is a fancy hack which attempts to do the impossible: turning your (presumably jailbroken) iPod Touch into… well, not an iPhone proper, but close enough. Retailing for a rumoured ¥300 – ¥500 ($44 – $74), the case allegedly also acts as a beefed up battery (800mAh) to account for all the calls you’ll be making.

That is, of course, if you’ll be making them. With no available information of any kind, not even a website, it’s understandably difficult to believe. In fact, the only thing keeping me from throwing this article out entirely is this video. Too good to be true? Maybe. Or maybe you should just bum a friend’s old iPhone 3G off of him when he trades up. Unlike the Apple Peel, iPhones are confirmed to exist.

What do you think?
