    Can you answer iPhone calls on an iPod touch?

    Very Dom Joly . . .

    Will be useful whilst browsing though. Also good the other way round allowing you to call Safari web page numbers from the iPad routing through the phone.

    I've been waiting for this and the ability to send SMS from iPad via my iPhone.

    I can see this only being useful if your phone is in the other room and you're using your iPad. Otherwise you're draining the battery on TWO devices when you could just be draining it on one.

    The SMS relay feature, on the other hand, is awesome, because now you can SMS with a real keyboard if you happen to be at your Mac when people text you. Woo!

    Or to send your lame Android using friends links or pictures while you are using your desktop! Very very cool.

    I'm not on the Beta programme this time around, so can't test this myself.

    I'd have thought it'd be one of the first things people who own both an iPhone & an iPad would want to try, however.

    Unless I've completely misunderstood this feature? Which is possible.

    Anyone had a go yet please?


    Edit: just saw this on another thread;

    Sounds like it works by turning the iPad into a Bluetooth Speaker and adding a GUI interface for control.
