We previously reported the magical adapter case, which could transform an iPod touch into iPhone, and we found out that it’s available for sale on Taobao, but you can only pre-order for one now, by giving a deposit of $100 Chinese yuan (about $14).

For around $300 – $500 Chinese Yuan (about $43 – 70), you can purchase this adapter to fit your iPod touch on it, and make calls with it. The launch date of Apple Peel 520 is uncertain, and we are trying to get one to have a full review on it. Please stay tuned.

Google has decided they are no longer willing to continue censoring search results on Google.cn, the Chinese version of the search engine. This may well mean having to shut down Google.cn, and potentially leave China completely. Yup, it’s real, Google is pulling out of China very soon.
