Hack Turns iPad 3G Into a Fully Functional Phone!

There’s something fishy about this, but iPad 3G has supposedly been hacked to make phone calls and send SMS messages — just like a giant iPhone!

Check out the video of the supersized iPad/iPhone in action:

The hack is called PhoneItiPad and is by iPhoneIslam, which was behind the FaceIt-3GS, a hack that enables FaceTime video calling on an iPhone 3GS. According to iPhoneIslam’s caption on the YouTube video:

A hack that will change the game. Can you imagine turning your iPad to a fully functional phone.

With No Special Hardware all what you need is Jailbroken iPad 3G and your iPad 3G will do anything you expect from iPhone… Phone Calls, SMS, FaceTime by Phone Number… ETC

iPhoneIslam hasn’t given a released date but says PhoneItiPad will be available on the Cydia Store “very soon,” and before WWDC.

Why do I think this is fishy? The video just doesn’t seem right. Why does the video go out of focus, for example, just as the phone icon is tapped?
