Super Adapter Turns Any Normal iPod Touch Into a Working Cell Phone

If you're one of the skeptics who held off on picking up the controversial iPhone 4, one company is rewarding that prudence by introducing a device called the Apple Peel that turns any iPod Touch into a working mobile phone.

When you slide your iPod Touch into the new Apple Peel adapter the device--complete with a SIM card slot and Infineon baseband chip--allows you to make calls, instant message friends and also acts as a 4.5 hour backup battery. The bad news is that the Apple Peel, which retails for roughly $250, is currently only available here.
