Sprint Calls Coming on Bria, Truphone and Skype to iPods

Sprint wants you calling. And not with a cellphone. The new Sprint Peel is a backpack, charger and carrier for the Apple iPod touch. Well as it turns out, three of my favorite applications CounterPath's Bria, the Truphone of iPod/iPhone app and Skype all work very, very well on the iPod Touch. Add in a headset and mic and off you go making calls over 3G. Call it the poor man's iPhone.

Now here's something to drool over. Bria works over BlueTooth. So that means in the car, your iPod on Sprint over 3G connected to your in car BlueTooth system or your headset when your out and about equals a phone. Reportedly the next version of the iPod will also have a webcam and a built in speaker too. That means calling will just be getting easier.

Only problem is the Bluetooth stack on the iPod doesn't support Headset or Handsfree profiles, nor does the iPad even with 3g in tow. No wonder people jailbreak crapple products they're so restrictive.
