As the iPad was 1st unveiled back in January, a lot of detractor have complained that the much-hyped tablet device is really just an oversized iPhone, without the iPhone part.
Stephen Colbert so astutely noted, "If you've got an iPhone by now, the iPad will be very recognizable to you. The same touch screen technology. The same applications and just like the iPhone, you can't make calls with it."
Ha! really, scratch that last part. This week, a company called Truphone has released an iPad app which basically allows iPad owner to wield their gadget like a giant iPhone. Truphone is a VoIP application. similar to Skype, it harnesses the power of the Web to go around traditional phone lines.
According to Truphone, everyone calls to other Truphone, Skype, or Google Talk users be free; you pay a really low rate to call a landline otherwise mobile phone - five cents per minute in the US, less if you sign up for a monthly plan. The iPad version of Truphone - the app is also obtainable on the iPhone - uses the built-in speaker and mic on the iPad to relay calls.
But let's face it, folks: by the Apple iPad like an Apple iPhone is jump to look really, really silly. The tablet device, for one, measures some 9 inches by 7 inches. It's large, it's important, and no one wants to hold that thing up to their head. Over at TechCrunch, John Biggs films himself by the Truphone, and admit that it all makes for "the most ridiculous talking knowledge you’ve ever seen."
