GoSolarUSA has just informed us that the first demonstration-model of Yosion’s Apple Peel 520 devices are expected to arrive on American shores this week. GoSolarUSA’s president and CEO, Tyson Rohde, is hopeful that the high demand will translate into marketing alliances with large retail distributors such as Radio Shack, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and Fry’s Electronics.
The Apple Peel 520 is a device that slips over the iPod Touch’s case and includes a 4.5-hour battery, dock connector and SIM card. With the proper software installed, the Apple Peel adds the ability to make voice calls and text messages to the Touch. The first production units went out to Chinese retailers last week.
