Turn an iPod touch into a Phone with the MorphCase

This is an indiegogo crowd-funding project.  The MorphCase promises to turn a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th generation iPod touch into a “100% WiFi mobile phone”.  What it actually does is plug into the iPod’s headphone jack and snap around the device to add a speaker at the top for your ear and a microphone at the bottom so you can hold the touch to your ear like a phone.  You’ll still need to download and use a VoIP application and WiFi to actually make the calls.  For a $30 early-contributor pledge, you’ll receive a MorphCase in your choice of black or white.  The minimum pledge increases to $35 once the limited early-contributor spots are claimed.  A pledge of $75 is required for the chrome-colored case.  The funding period ends October 3, 2012.

  2. Reminds me of the first handspring ad-on for the Palm. One thing I miss about the treo was how long I could keep using the same accessories. Apples done a so-so job with their 30pin connector, but when I did have apple products more often then not I ended up with the “your devices is not supported” even tho there was no reason it shouldn’t be. Tho my HTC Evo is no better, I love the phone, but every single updated android device requires me to repurchase all my accessories. GRRRRRR

  3. I have an ipod touch (4g). When using it like a phone w/o ear buds, I just hold it upside-down and reverse (screen away from my head). Works perfect.
