Has anyone seen this yet? ipod touch... phone?

engadget.com has an article about "unlocking" the ipod touch for phone use...

http://www.engadget.com/2007/09/18/s...d-by-a-hacker/

Do you think this is real or just a hoax to get people in a frenzy?

Well, technically, the dev system on the iPod Touch says that bluetooth is disabled (as was WiFi at the time). So, Bluetooth might actually be in the iPod Touch, just disabled.

If Bluetooth does work, it's an internet phone.

Hint 1 - hacker's name is "5m0kNcR4K"
Hint 2 - it's tagged humor
Hint 3 - it's obviously a joke

despite rumors to the contrary, there’s no evidence of a Bluetooth chip

I thought these comments were kind of harsh, but then I read the "article". It's rather amusing, but I'm surprised anyone would have taken it seriously....

Oh, by the way, make sure you get your $7,000 rebate on your Apple Lisa, and spread the news to anyone you know who was an early Apple adopter in the 80s.

Well, I don't know. Does your mouse have Wifi and OSX on it?

Don't be a jerk.

I forget where I read it but in the iPhone the Wi-Fi and bluetooth are in the same chip so it could be there, just not noticeable.
