Turn your Ipod touch into an Iphone with the Apple Peel 520

The Chinese will never cease to amaze me… If you’ve ever wanted to turn your ipod touch into an Iphone its now possible thanks to Chinese 22-year-old programmer who created a cover for the Ipod touch called the Apple Peel 520.

The Apple Peel 520 case contains a battery, dock connector and SIM card that allows voice calls. Users will also have to install special software to enable a text messaging function, and to allow the device to properly work with the iPod Touch (users will have to break into the software of the iPod in order to download the necessary applications).

Once installed, the Apple Peel gets around five hours of talk time and 120 hours on standby, according to a review posted on

Whether or not the Apple Peel 520 will appeal to Chinese consumers or have any impact on iPhone sales in the country remains to be seen. So far, according to Maxpy, only around 150 of the devices have been pre-sold on, a popular Chinese e-commerce site. Two were sent to technology websites for review.

While there are plans to mass manufacture the gadget in the future, Maxpy says those plans are on hold until the company can ensure there are no intellectual property right violations.

Where there is a will there definatley is a Chinese way!
