iPod Touch Ideas

20 03 2011

The iPod touch 4G is a neat gadget. It’s sad knowing that it does not have something I would really like to have: an FM receiver, because I don’t really like listening to song after song. Some presenter chit chat or news from time to time is a lot better than a continuous playlist.

It turns out, however, that you can buy an external receiver from here (don’t trust the review; everything works OK). Neat! To begin listening to FM radios you just have to plug it in, and get the app here. The thing’s price is reasonable I think, and the app is for free!

So long boring long Sunday run!

But then my imagination comes into play. The touch doesn’t have UMTS/3G either. I searched for an external modem, just like the FM receiver, but it doesn’t seem to exist. Why can’t anyone out there devise such a gadget!

If you stumbled into this page and had the resources to actually build an external UMTS/3G modem for iPod Touch, please don’t forget about me, your idea-giver. A share of your patent’s royalty would be great 😀 (so desperate…)

As you say, no one seems to have thought of using an external USB modem on the iPod touch 4thGen via jailbreak or without buying peels. I like the idea of using my existing older hardware!
