    Well, I am now the proud owner of a custom handcrafted official Touchmods mic.
    I have to say that it is a beauty. I am pleased to have it and it works great!!! AND it arrived in just 3 days.
    Before anyone starts complaining about why they haven't received theirs yet. . . I ordered my way before they decided to take the 500 pre orders. Be patient guys, your will come soon. If you haven't ordered one yet you can go to the touchmods site and do so. http://touchmods.net

    Thanks alot Touchmods team. Here is a pic.

    Is the quality as good as they presume it to be? In the video it seems as clear (or if not, clearer) than an ordinary phone. Quite impressive.

    I believe that it is. You can hear my voice crystal clear. I have not encountered any crackling. I can hear with the earbuds in quite reasonably.

    There is however, a small delay between talking. You have to wait just a second before they can hear you. That could also be just because of my provider. Not sure at the moment. I will test another provider soon. I will be making another video in the next couple of days with a conversation between two parties. So keep an eye out.

    Wow, I think I'm convinced. That small delay isn't that big of a deal, I wouldn't worry about it. Oh, and nice tats.

    After speaking with the Touchmods team. It seems that the delay could be a sw issue and is something that is already being discussed at the moment. It is possible that it would be fixed in a future update of the sw. :)

    I do not regret getting it at all. I am really pleased.

    I am in contact with the Touchmods team quite alot recently. So if you have any further questions I will do my best to answer them for you.

    Who are you using as a provider and how much does it cost? I'm not too clear on voip. I thought it cost something.

    Just for the sake of him not being on at the minute, he uses Voip buster (www.voipbuster.com). its free for 300 minutes a week, but after that you'll have to pay.

    Do you think you could test the mic out with the Listen app to see if it works all right?

    @delude - Thanks for the reply for me. I was catching some quality Zzz's :D

    PlayWithTV -
    I have not tested it personally. Sorry, it is not something that I would use.
    However over at the Touchmods site this was said about it
    I hope that helps. If you want to get a more specific answer go here and look for the user "D3fPo3t" Also, you can leave a comment there for him OR you can look at the posts on that page, he left his email. You can email him with your question.

    Does the inclusion of the microphone allow you to use "iPhone only" apps like the voice notes application? I use notes the most out of all applications, if I could save them as sound files it would help me out far more than VoIP calls. Sounds crazy, but it's the truth!

    I was searching your site and theirs for a price for the microphone, do they have a ballpark yet for when they do start getting it produced? I don't want to pre-order without having a price in mind.

    As far as I know you can use it with VNotes, Nikotalki. I will talk with the Touchmods team a little later this evening, and I will get back to you with a positive answer. But I do recall reading somewhere on his blogs that it works with that.

    As for the price. It is listed on their FAQ page. I will update my site to reflect that information. Thanks for reminding me. I seemed to have left that out as it is a very common question.

    They will be 30Euro, roughly 40 or 45dollars. That will include S&H. Well worth the price.

    Get back to me if you have any further questions.

    EDIT: I just installed voice notes and tested it for you. I have attached a file that I just recored for you. Check it out.
    The file gets stored on you ipod touch at
    Code:
    ~/Library/Recordings

    EEK, $40+ to make calls only in a WiFi area? I wanted this, but now I will have to pass for now. I can afford it easily, but it isn't worth something where I can just use my house phone at home without having to pay $40+. Maybe if SIP VoIP has more features in the future or something I will get it.

    Well, to each his own I guess. It is not for everybody. But you are forgetting about something. This mic is not limited to just VoIP. Some people will want it for just that and others will want it for the voice notes. This by the way, is a very useful app for many people. Some will use it for the Nikotalki. And some will use it for that new app Listen(not quite sure about that one yet). So having the mic is a very useful item to have around.

    I can promise you that new features are on the horizon. Just keep an eye on their site and who knows, they might add an update or make a mic to your liking. If you check their page they are working on wireless capabilities and also hands free capabilities.

    I'll definitely keep it in mind. The mic is great and if I do end up buying a mic, it will be the touchmods.net mic. I just need to look into this more probably. Hopefully SIP-VoIP will have a promising future and it will pave the way for many other important things to come from touchmods.

    I also pre-ordered/pre-paid for a mic from them. I haven't received it yet, but that's because they are still in production. I can't wait to get it and try it out! :)

    I pre-reserved like 2 days ago, does this mean I should be getting an email now? Or should I expect one in a little while since I just placed my reserve?

    Well, that is a good question. Check your email and check your spam/junk mail and make sure that you are checking on the same email account that you registered with. If you do not receive your email, by maybe tomorrow. You might be on the list of the next batch.
    For a faster response, go here and post your question. Marian will answer before the day has finished. He usually does. http://touchmods.wordpress.com/2008/01/11/here-she-comes/#comments

    Also, it seems that they have had alot more people ordering than they expected. This was taken from their FAQ page. Maybe this would be helpful to you.

    I am not sure exactly when they will ship. I am assuming VERY soon though.
    Mine only took three days to arrive once it was shipped.

    Scam

    This is a very slick scam. Don't fall for it. I'd urge anyone who's "pre-ordered" to do a charge-back or contact their credit card company immediately. You're going to be strung along for weeks otherwise, and eventually these guys will disappear.

    Pretty big claims. Any proof to back that up?
