Please Use Headphones If You Buy This iPad App

Tablets are meant to be complementary devices. A tablet can not replace your computer, and it can not take the place of your phone. So it baffles me a little bit when I hear people complain that they can’t make calls on the iPad, as if their phone isn’t in their pocket. Nonetheless, there are people out there who are desperate to hold their iPad to their ear, I assume with two hands, and chat it up. Luckily for them, iPhoneIslam has created an app that lets users make and receive calls, and send and receive texts on the 10-inch tablet.

Of course, finding an app like this in the Apple App Store would be too good to be true, which is why the PhoneIt-iPad app is on available on jailbroken iPads. To those of you interested, we’d certainly suggest using a pair of mic-supported headphones like the ones supplied by Apple, unless you want to look like a kid using an over-sized iPhone. It uses a regular 3G SIM card, instead of the standard data-only SIM cards that normally ship with the iPad, and costs $20 from the Cydia store.
