Gadget claims to turn your iPod Touch into an iPhone

Apple Peel 520

Wouldn’t it be great if you could transform your iPod Touch into an iPhone?

The folks over at Yosion is claiming that with the help of their new adapter, called the Apple Peel 520, you can actually use your iPod Touch as a proper phone. The device is powered by an Infineon baseband chip that, when combined with a regular SIM card, makes it compatible for voice calls and text messages.

Apple Peel also doubles up as a battery that gives the Touch an additional 4.5 hours of talk time, or 120 hours of standby time. According to Engadget, the device is coming out in China as early as this week, with a price ranging from $44 to $74.
