IGot Iphone!! LOL

iGot iPhone!! LOL

I’ve wanted an iPhone or Blackberry for the longest time but in the midst of all this credit crunch one is not fortunate enough to afford such a gadget. My phone is somewhat it’s own person, it switches off when it wants, the number 2 sometimes dials number 7 when pressed, it’s a hard life!!!

Well, not for long..

I’ve got an iPod Touch and apparently it can be used as a phone now.. Here’s the news..

Truphone, the UK-based company, has created a new freeware application for the iPod Touch which uses the media player’s built in Wi-Fi to allow owners to make phone calls via voice over internet protocol (VoIP) systems such as Skype and MSN.

Currently only calls to other iPod or iPhone can be made using the application – but developers say calls to landlines will be in place in the near future.

The new technology could revolutionise mobile phone communication as the company promises “there is no monthly line rental, no subscription or other hidden charges”.

The application will be free to download from the Apple applications store.

To get up and running you will need a microphone adaptor, which will be available to buy “soon”, according to Truphone.

Geraldine Wilson, Truphone’s CEO, said: “There are a slew of new features we’re rolling out for the iPod Touch that will let users call landlines, Skype users or send instant messages. We’re talking weeks, not months, before these go live.”
