Back in January, we reported that Yoison, the company behind the Apple Peel, is working on a next-generation Peel that brings several additions to the table. But first things first… like Sprint’s ZTE Peel iPod touch case, the Apple Peel 520 gives Apple’s iPod touch the ability to connect to acellular data network. Unlike the ZTE Peel, the Apple Peel also allows users to send and receive voice calls and SMS from an iPod touch. In other works, the Apple Peel picks up where Sprint’s iPod case left off.
The most apparent change is a redesigned case that makes the iPod touch look like an iPhone 4. Other changes include added support for Apple’s fourth-generation iPod touch (the current Apple Peel 520 supports the third-generation model), and GPRS data support in addition to EDGE. Unfortunately, however, it looks like 3G is still off limits.
The second gen Apple Peel 520 is priced at ¥520 (about $79) and M.I.C Gadget reports that Yosion will sell the product starting tomorrow ( March 28).
