Next version of the Apple Peel will allow for GPRS data
For anyone using Sprint's version of the Apple Peel, they're surely appreciative of the novel gadget which enables them to turn their iPod touch into an equipped iPhone-like device that connects via Sprint's 3G network.

However, we're quickly getting a first look at its expected successor in the form of the second-generation Apple Peel that dishes up a few substantial upgrades to polish its blinding attraction. Specifically, it's a bit more sleek looking than its predecessor and could potentially be mistaken as nothing more than an iPhone 4. Still, we find it having the ability to accept SIM cards which provides for functionality like placing calls and sending text message – while still acting as a battery to juice your device.

Interestingly enough, it even allows you to fall back and use GPRS data – which can come in handy if you're outside the realms of today's more contemporary networks. In the end, it's shaping up to be a spectacular offering for those who don't necessarily want to dive head first with a purchase of a standard iPhone model.
