iPad Hacked to Perform Like An iPhone

Hulger iPad Phone Adaptor
I always expected that someone, somewhere would hack the iPad and turn it into a huge iPhone … It’s now a reality, or so this YouTube video claims:

The video description reads:

A hack that will change the game. Can you imagine turn your iPad to a fully functional phone.
WIth No Special Hardware all what you need is Jailbroken iPad 3G and your iPad 3G will do anything you expect from iPhone… Phone Calls, SMS, FaceTime by Phone Number… ETC
No Release Date, But Will Be Out On Cydia Store Very Soon.

While I think it’s a neat ‘trick’, I don’t feel this is very practical for someone looking to replace their handheld device. Or maybe if your iPhone runs out of juice and you need a quick solution for making emergency calls. I don’t predict any long-term plan to implement this into the iPad since it’s simply not practical. Imagine how silly a person would look holding an iPad up to the side of their face while on a phone call.

And unfortunately, if you’re like me, then you can’t take advantage of this hack since it requires a Jailbroken device, but if you’ve already been down that path and want to give this a try, enjoy.
