    Default Turn Your iPod Touch into an iPhone
    The iPod Touch is a snazzy device, which is nearly the exact same as an iPhone - except it can't make calls.

    Now, using SIP-VoIP and a Touchmod Mic, you can rectify that issue. For under $50, you get the mic, and you can also get a mic/headset for around $60.



    This makes it easy if you already have a cell phone, and/or are always around WiFi!

    You may remember, Touchmod launched SIP VoIP back in January, but they've now apparently found a commercial vendor of the mic they were working on.

    Nice job, guys!

    Works great! But there's a few seconds delay when making calls.

    Hahaha yeah, I got a little thrown off at a 12-13 year old kid doing a better tech demo video than most adults I see on YouTube.

    Good going, kid. This is going to add a lot of value to the touch once its stabilized as a VoIP phone.

    My question is that lets say if you make a call, on the other phone what does it say under the caller id, and do you have to pay monthly?

    that is sweet but you will need to be near a router to get this to work, or just buy a cantenna =) a jumbo cantenna, naa then everyone will start attacking your network

    It's nice and all but the mic is still $50.

    However, without the mic you can call people but not talk, only listen.

    What's the point when you can only use this with Wi-fi, it's $50 for a mic, it has lag, and it's got an ugly dongle on the bottom of it? Just get an iPhone and you won't have to deal with all this. :P
