An iPad (Wi-Fi +3G) has apparently been hacked to make phone calls and SMS messages. While we’re not sure about the legitimacy of this claim, a relatively low-quality YouTube video demonstrates the hack in action, and it appears to work.
The hack has reportedly been achieved by iPhoneIslam, the same group who brought FaceTime to the Middle East. As you can see in the video below, a brand new hack – called PhoneItiPad – appears to add a working Phone and Messages application to the iPad 3G.
Don’t get too excited, because the hack isn’t available in Cydia yet. However, according to the group, it will be able to purchase in the Cydia Store “very soon” (before WWDC).
