Got an iPod touch and want to turn it into a phone? No problem (perhaps) if this particular slice of vaporware emerges, blinking, into reality. See, this add-on gizmo has got what it takes to turn your iPod touch into a no-VoIP phone, cool.

This thing comes from Yosion and is called the Apple Peel 520. Effectively it is a case which contains a SIM card and an Infineon baseband chip so you can use iPod touch for calls and SMS messaging. You also get a built-in battery in this device, which might cost $44-$74, if it ever emerges at all.
