You want to have an Apple iPhone 4 but cannot afford it? Now you can turn your iPod Touch into an “iPod Touch 4G” using the Apple Peel 520 from China.
Apple Peel 520 is an adapter that not only offers voice calling and text messaging (with iPod Touch jailbreak) but also as an 800mAh battery for your iPod Touch. The price is around $388 RMB.
The problems with “iPod Touch 4″
It actually works as advertised but with some problems:
- Shows “Calling” even though the call has been picked up.
- Incoming phone number and contacts may not appear.
- Cannot set ringtone for incoming messages and calls.
- Cannot adjust call volume.
- iPod Touch display would not light up when there is incoming calls.
- Accepted call could only be hung up by the other party.
- Cannot delete/forward a single SMS message.
- Cannot add multiple SMS recipients at the same time.
I believe the problems are not a deal breaker for those who want to “upgrade” their iPod Touch to iPhone. Better still the Apple Peel 520 support all three generations of iPod Touch.
It is now available for pre-order on TaoBao in China. Are you interested?
