Apple Peel 520 sleeve gives your iPod touch cell services, coming March 28

The Apple Peel 520 t has now been confirmed that it will be released in China on March 28, that is next week! Back in July 2010, we heard about an iPod touch sleeve coming out of China called the Apple Peel 520. What's interesting about this particular sleeve is it can give your iPod touch cell services.

The sleeve will allow you to make normal phone calls, send text messages and also use GPRS data services. It also has a battery built in too, to offer some extra juice to your iPod touch when you’re using it. Of course your iPod touch will need to be jailbroken.

The price for the sleeve will be around ¥520 ($79) if you are prepared to pre-order or ¥598 ($99) if you wait for it to be released. No news on international shipping, or if it will be available outside of China; we will have to wait and see.

Could you see a need for cell services on an iPod touch? Would you buy one of these if they are available in your country? Let us know in the comments!
