Yosion Apple Peel 520 Turns Your iPod Touch Into An iPhone

While the iPod touch wasn’t designed to make cellular phone calls, it would be pretty cool if you could turn it into an iPhone. The folks over at Yosion seem to think that they can, with a product cheekily dubbed Apple Peel 520. It’s powered by an Infineon baseband chip, and offers voice calling and text messaging services by allowing you to fit a regular SIM card into it, though you’ll probably need to jailbreak the device in order to get the necessary applications in. Aside from granting the device cellular connectivity, the device also doubles up as an 800mAh battery that gives the iPod touch an additional 4.5 hours of talk time, or 120 hours of standby time. Word is that the Apple Peel 520 will be available sometime this week from $44 to $74, though some folks who remain skeptical about its authenticity as there isn’t an official website or compatibility list released just yet. Check a video of this device in action after the jump.
