Everyone already knows that the iPod Touch is basically an iPhone without the phone part, but now even that might not be true. The Apple Peel 520 is a very interesting product that claims to turn your iPod into a full-fledged phone, while also acting as a protective case and extra 800mAh battery, giving the device 4.5 hours of talk time and 120 hours of standby. So how does it work? You apparently insert a SIM card into the Apple Peel and, thanks to some jailbroken apps (which are totally legal now!), you can use your iPod as a phone, making texts, calls, and more. Here’s a video of the device, though take it with a grain of salt.

The Apple Peel is available soon for $44 to $74.
